From one of the most accomplished British writers working
today, the Man Booker Prize-shortlisted author of The
Wolf Border, comes a unique and arresting collection of
short fiction that is both disturbing and dazzling.
Sarah Hall has been hailed as "one of the most significant
and exciting of Britain’s young novelists" (The
Guardian), a writer whose "intelligence and ambition
are thrilling to behold" (BookForum). Her work has
been acclaimed as "amazing . . . terrific and original"
(Washington Post). In this collection of nine works
of short fiction, she uses her piercing insight to plumb the
depth of the female experience and the human soul.
A husband’s wife transforms into a vulpine in "Mrs. Fox,"
winner of the BBC Short Story Prize. In "Case Study 2, " A
social worker struggles with a foster child raised in a
commune. A new mother runs into an old lover in "Luxury
Hour." In incandescent prose, full of rich observations and
striking clarity, Hall has composed nine wholly original
pieces—works of fiction that will resonate long after the
final page is turned.
