In the absence of much good global news, we at Fussy are loving literary awards season this year.
The latest writer to be honored is Sarah Hall, who became the first author to win the BBC National Short Story Award for the second time.
Hall won for “The Grotesques,” part of her collection Sudden Traveller, and will receive £15,000 ($19,300).
The BBC National Short Story Award, in its fifteenth year, is considered the most prestigious prize of its type.
You can read Hall’s reaction and judges’ praise in the BBC.
