Named among Granta magazine's Best of Young British Novelists, Sarah Hall has been winning prizes and praise for her fiction since her 2003 debut novel, Haweswater. Her second novel, The Electric Michelangelo, was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and among her many other awards are the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize, the BBC National Short Story Award and Portico Prize for Fiction.
On Tuesday 14 April, as part of London Book & Screen Week, Sarah will be at Foyles, her only event in London, to talk about her new book, The Wolf Border, her first full-length novel since 2009's Man Booker prize-longlisted How to Paint a Dead Man.
Set against a background of political upheaval and the campaign for Scottish independence, the book sees Rachel return home from an Idaho natural reserve at the request of the Earl of Annerdale, who wants her to oversee his controversial scheme to reintroduce the grey wolf to the Lake District. This bid to recreate the untamed wildernesses of a Britain centuries old also offers Rachel the possibility of reconciliation with her estranged family, as she contemplates becoming a mother for the first time.
Tackling fundamental questions of identity and the sway of love, sex and conflict in all human lives, The Wolf Border is another outstanding novel from the author described by The Bookseller magazine as "the best young writer in Britain".
Sarah will be in conversation with journalist and author Sam Leith.
