Sarah Hall

An interview with Sarah Hall, winner of the James Tiptree Jr Award for a "work of science fiction or fantasy that engages the subject of gender in new and thought-provoking ways" on the excellent galleycat.

The dystopian Daughters of the North is set in a stricken and flooded Britain reduced to accepting food airlifted from a US government under the control of Christian fundamentalists.
The novel, published in the UK as The Carhullan Army has already won the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize for writers under the age of 35.
