Sudden Traveler by Sarah Hall is a collection of seven stories where the characters are trying to reconcile their journeys through life, death, and love.
It’s Throwback Thursday, and in today’s episode, I’m sharing an interview with author Sarah Hall about her story collection, Sudden Traveler. This is a collection of seven stories where the characters are trying to reconcile their journeys through life, death, and love. These stories are not interconnected, and the slip in and out between fantasy and reality and the themes span love, life, death, grief, parenthood, and women’s agency.
This interview was originally recorded in October 2019.
