    review Madame Zero New [Madame Zero] ☆ Sarah Hall UPDATE I've read a number of reviews and apparently the two stories I liked best have been previously published On the one hand that's money grab territory On the other hand I'm glad I was introduced to the two very odd memorable stories here I liked very much Fox and Evie Plus there is a third story Theatre 6 here that I found par

Madame Zero

Madame Zero review ☆ 3 Madame Zero is a stunning new story collection embracing the darkness eroticism and absurdity of human existence One of our most celebrated authors Sarah Hall is an exuisite chronicler of landscapes of all kinds rural industrial bodily psychological and these gorgeous stories reveal a writer working at the peak of her powers Whether depicting a husband who finds his wife utterly transformed a child who becomes a case s. Another fine unsettling collection of stories perhaps not uite as visceral as the ones in The Beautiful Indifference but if anything subtler and imaginative The story from which the title is taken Mrs Fox is particularly striking if a little reminiscent of Angela Carter in this one a man deals with the metamorphosis of his wife into a fox and the story is told in a matter of fact style that belies its fantasy element this story won the BBC Short story prize in 2013 and it is easy to see whySorry I don t have time to write a thorough review but I would definitely recommend this one

review Madame Zero

Madame Zero review ☆ 3 Tudy in wildness or a road trip overwhelmed by buried phobias Hall is always deeply attuned to the uncanny strangeness that underlies our everyday reality In these memorable scenes she delights in the mythic symbolism of wilderness and wasteland and revels in blurring thresholds between the natural and urban mundane and surreal human and animalThis is a haunting collection from a uniuely fertile imagination written in. This is my first encounter with Sarah Hall and it left me wondering why I had taken so long In an unsettling collection of tales all centred around some kind of transformation this gifted author puts her dark imagination and considerable writing talents to wonderful useConvention tells us in which direction each story will lead but Hall confounds our expectations every time Three tales in particular stood out for me Later His Ghost is a terrifying slice of cli fi which imagines a world literally torn apart by relentless high winds In Eve a man becomes both appalled and aroused by the new found sexual appetites of his previously timid wife However it is the unnerving Mrs Fox that will not leave my mind A couple are walking in the countryside when the woman transforms into a vixen in front of her husband s eyes But this is no fairytale it s a visceral piece of writing in which a wild animal has taken the place of a loved one without cause or reason The man cleans up the black twisted scat that the creature leaves on the kitchen floor and tries not to be disgusted by its smell He brings home a live pigeon for her to eat and becomes repulsed when she rips it open in front of his eyes This arrangement can t go on and she eventually leaves for a suitable environment For months the man is overwhelmed with sadness but one day on the heath where the metamorphosis occurred he finally comes to terms with what has happened To be comfortable inside one s sadness is not valueless This too will pass All things tend towards transience mutability It is in such mindful moments when everything is both held and released that revelation comes It s an arresting tale and I wasn t surprised to learn that it won the BBC short story award I must admit that not all of these stories made an impression on me but the ones that did struck me with their surreal imagery and keen insight Madame Zero is a startling haunting collection that I won t forget in a hurry
