Sudden Traveller

Sudden Traveller

Author(s): Sarah Hall

Location(s): World

Genre(s): Short Stories

Era(s): Contemporary

In Turkish forests or rain-drenched Cumbrian villages, characters walk, drive, dream and fly, trying to reconcile themselves with their journey through life and death.

Radical, charged with a transformative, elemental power, each of these stories invites us to stand at the very edge of our possible selves.

Includes the story ‘The Grotesques’, winner of the BBC Short Story Award, 2020.
