This chapter focuses on the writing of the Cumbrian novelist Sarah Hall, and explores her work’s close engagement with place and landscape as constitutive of social identity. By examining her fiction up to and including The Wolf Border (2015), the chapter explores her insistent concern with the material heft of the physical world in an increasingly weightless, digitised realm. Material stuff matters in Hall’s work, and manifests a ineradicable relationship between the human being and the beauty, pain, and violence of the world.
