Sarah Hall talks about tackling big subjects in short fiction, the second person and the view from outside London, while we introduce all the stories from Summer 2022

For the first edition of the Fictionable podcast, we welcome Sarah Hall, who reveals the inspirations for her story Be Good. She also explains why she chose to tell this haunting story in the second person, and why authors outside of the capital sometimes find themselves written out of the national conversation.

We hear about all the stories in Summer 2022, with short readings from Hall, Alain Mabanckou, Ladee Hubbard, Owen Booth and Isabel Greenberg. And we also hear a little about how the magazine was funded, with a great, big Fictionable thank you to all our Kickstarter backers.
