"Every one of the seven tales here delights and disturbs in equal measure. The Beautiful Indifference illustrates that short fiction is indeed a finely wrought art form, and Hall is an artist of considerable and concise skill. Each story is a gem, but together they from a collection of astonishingly sensuous power." -- Sunday Times (London)

Sarah Hall has been hailed as one of the most significant and exciting of Britain's young novelists (The Guardian). Now, in this remarkable collection of short fiction, she has created a work at once provocative and mesmerizing.
