Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies Summary


Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel

Winners of the Man Booker Prize in 2009 and 2012.

This elegantly presented double-hardback slipcased set is available for a limited time only. The perfect gift for any book lover.

With this historic win for Bring Up the Bodies, Hilary Mantel becomes the first British author and the first woman to be awarded two Man Booker Prizes.

By 1535 Thomas Cromwell is Chief Minister to Henry VIII, his fortunes having risen with those of Anne Boleyn, the king's new wife. But Anne has failed to give the king an heir, and Cromwell watches as Henry falls for plain Jane Seymour. Cromwell must find a solution that will satisfy Henry, safeguard the nation and secure his own career. But neither minister nor king will emerge unscathed from the bloody theatre of Anne's final days.

An astounding literary accomplishment, Bring Up the Bodies is the story of this most terrifying moment of history, by one of our greatest living novelists.

Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies Reviews


Praise for WOLF HALL:

'Wonderful. As soon as I opened this book I was gripped. I read it almost non-stop' The Times

'Dizzyingly, dazzingly good' Daily Mail

'Genuinely outstanding' Independent

'So original and disconcerting that it will surely come to be seen as a paradigm-shifter' Sunday Telegraph

Praise for BRING UP THE BODIES:

'BRING UP THE BODIES is simply exceptional...I envy anyone who hasn't yet read it' Sandra Parsons, Daily Mail

'In another league. This ongoing story of Henry VIII's right-hand man is the finest piece of historical fiction I have ever read. A staggering achievement' Sarah Crompton, Sunday Telegraph

'BRING UP THE BODIES succeeds brilliantly in every particle...it's an imaginative achievement to exhaust superlatives' Spectator

'WOLF HALL was a tour de force, but its sequel is leaner, more brilliant, more shocking than its predecessor' Erica Wagner, The Times
