ABOUT THE BOOK
England, the 1520s. Henry VIII is on the throne, but has no heir. Cardinal Wolsey is his chief advisor, charged with securing the divorce the pope refuses to grant. Into this atmosphere of distrust and need, comes Thomas Cromwell, first as Wolsey's clerk, and later his successor.
Cromwell is a wholly original man: the son of a brutal blacksmith, a political genius, a briber, a charmer, a bully, a man with a delicate and deadly expertise in manipulating people and events. Ruthless in pursuit of his own interests, he is as ambitious in his wider politics as he is for himself. His reforming agenda is carried out in the grip of a self-interested parliament and a king who fluctuates between romantic passions and murderous rages.
From one of our finest living writers, Wolf Hall is that very rare thing: a truly great English novel, one that explores the intersection of individual psychology and wider politics. With a vast array of characters, and richly overflowing with incident, it peels back history to show us Tudor England as a half-made society, moulding itself with great passion, suffering and courage.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
HILARY MANTEL, born 06 July 1952, is an English author who has written short stories, essays, biographies and, most famously, historical fiction. She is one of only a few authors to have won the Man Booker Prize twice, for Wolf Hall and its sequel, Bring Up the Bodies.
She was born in Glossop, Derbyshire and studied Law at the London School of Economics. She moved to Botswana in 1977 with her husband and later spent four years in Saudi Arabia. Her memoir of this period, Someone to Disturb, won The Spectator's inaugural Shiva Naipaul Memorial Prize. She returned to England in the mid-1980s.
Before the success of Wolf Hall she had written nine successful books and regularly wrote for The Spectator and other magazines and newspapers.
