Reviews

To enter into a world created by Sarah Hall is to step into a landscape that is feral and alive....The seven stories in Sudden Traveler merit savoring slowly: several of them reward rereading. Hall's prose is briny and sensual....Her lyricism....reveals the influence of James Salter, but it's a voice, fierce and unapologetic, uniquely her own.--Financial Times
Hall's writing is, as ever, arresting, polished, charged with imagery, luscious and electric. Reading her in Sudden Traveler is like watching a fireworks display.... Always on display is a sense of concentrated, spiky, efficient power.--Times Literary Supplement (London)
The writing is luminous from the first page...Slipping seamlessly between fantasy and reality, [Sudden Traveler] is an ambitious, powerful and, at times, deeply unsettling book.--Observer (UK)
"The themes of Sarah Hall's fifth novel, The Wolf Border, interlock like gears: men and women together, family, the animal/human divide, the idea of wilderness...Dazzling is her ability to distill so much into the pages of this completely satisfying novel."--New York Times Book Review
"Unsettling . . . what is new here...is the unflinching focus on physical control. This can make for squeamish reading...but the result is a powerful argument that, when civil institutions, or the bodies of state, are compromised, so, too, is the integrity of the body."--New Yorker on Daughters of the North
