Alyson Hallett

The Heart’s Elliptical Orbit

Available to buy from Amazon.

A book of ten short stories — individual stories previously published by Virago and Serpent’s Tail.

These are powerful stories, written with spare eloquence, packed with tension, menace and longing. Alyson Hallett is a new talent to watch.

Helen Dunmore

Evocatively fragmented at times, Hallett’s prose leaves the reader in no doubt as to the powerfully unsettling nature of love.
