The lives of four individuals — a dying painter, a blind girl, a landscape artist, and an art curator — intertwine across nearly five decades in this luminous and searching novel of extraordinary power. , Sarah Hall, "one of the most significant and exciting of Britain's young novelists" (), delivers "a maddeningly enticing read... an amazing feat of literary engineering" ().
Opening on the windswept front of Morecambe Bay, on the remote north-west coast of England, The Electric Michelangelo is a novel of love, loss and the art of tattooing. Hugely atmospheric, exotic and familiar, it is an exquisitely rendered portrait of seaside resorts on opposite sides of the Atlantic by one of the most uniquely talented novelists of her generation.
The state of the nation has changed. With much of the country now underwater, assets and weapons seized by the government — itself run by the sinister 'Authority' — and war raging in South America and China, life in Britain is unrecognisable.
From Man Booker Prize-shortlisted author Sarah Hall comes a collection of unique and disturbing short fiction hailed as a sensation by UK reviewers.
The serenity of a Finnish lake turns sinister when a woman's lover does not come back from his swim. . A bored London housewife discovers a secret erotic club. . A shy, bookish girl develops an unlikely friendship with the schoolyard bully and her wild, horsey family. . After fighting with her boyfriend, a woman goes for a night walk on a remote tropical beach with dark, unexpected consequences.
Sarah Hall has been hailed as "one of the most significant and exciting of Britain's young novelists" (The Guardian). Now, in this collection of seven pieces of short fiction, published in England to phenomenal praise, she is at her best: seven pieces of uniquely talented prose telling stories as wholly absorbing as they are ambitious and accessible.
From the award-winning author of The Electric Michelangelo, one of the most decorated young British writers working today, comes a literary masterpiece: a breathtaking work that beautifully and provocatively surveys the frontiers of the human spirit and our animal drives.
For almost a decade, zoologist Rachel Caine has lived a solitary existence far from her estranged family in England, monitoring wolves in a remote section of Idaho as part of a wildlife recovery program. But a surprising phone call takes her back to the peat and wet light of the Lake District where she grew up. The eccentric Earl of Annerdale has a controversial scheme to reintroduce the Grey Wolf to the English countryside, and he wants Rachel to spearhead the project. Though she's skeptical, the earl's lands are close to the village where she grew up, and where her aging mother now lives.
While the earl's plan harks back to an ancient idyll of untamed British wilderness, Rachel must contend with modern-day realities-health and safety issues, public anger and fear, cynical political interests. But the return of the Grey unexpectedly sparks her own regeneration.
Exploring the fundamental nature of wilderness and wildness, The Wolf Border illuminates both our animal nature and humanity: sex, love, conflict, and the desire to find answers to the question of our existence-the emotions, desires, and needs that rule our lives.
