  • Close-up portrait of award-winning author Sarah Hall with dark cropped hair and a big, fur-lined coat.

The greatest short story writer of her generation, Sarah Hall returns to MLF with her stunning new collection Sudden Traveller. Exploring themes of identity, eroticism and existentialism, Sarah’s stories travel the borders of life and death, past and present, the real and the mythical.

Declared ‘a genius’ by Jessie Burton, and three times shortlisted for the BBC National Short Story Award (winning with Mrs Fox in 2013), Sarah will discuss her work within – and love of – the short story form with host Naomi Frisby. Sarah was raised in Cumbria, and is the author of five novels including the Booker Prize nominated The Electric Michelangelo, and How to Paint a Dead Man.
