Summary

Winner of the BBC National Short Story Award

Winner of an O.Henry Prize for Short Fiction

On entering Sarah Hall's world, we become travellers, suddenly. Our surroundings of farms and offices, seasides and cities, Turkish forests and English moors, shade into otherness: hazed by delirium, tinged with dream, fertile with the animal codes of the wild. Our lovers, friends, and parents go about their days warped by ruptures of brain and body, alternatively predator and prey, reborn in unexpected evolutions, and haunted by drownings and dictators, agitated hearts and sprouting wings, coffins and floods. In this heady swirl of folktale and science fiction, realism and myth, we experiment with our creaturely identities, acting as lightning rods for elemental forces - and emerge as changed beings.

Utterly Breathtaking writing.

Skilled and lyrical story telling.
Prose as captivatingly beautiful as the stories are compelling. I could not stop listening!
