The Wolf Hall Trilogy

Winner of the Man Booker Prize

The first book in Hilary Mantel's award-winning Wolf Hall trilogy, with a new cover design to celebrate the publication of the much anticipated The Mirror and the Light

From one of our finest living writers, Wolf Hall is that very rare thing: a truly great English novel.

'Every bit as good as they said it was' Observer

'Terrific' Margaret Atwood

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

In Wolf Hall, one of our very best writers brings the opulent, brutal world of the Tudors to bloody, glittering life. It is the backdrop to the rise and rise of Thomas Cromwell: lowborn boy, charmer, bully, master of deadly intrigue, and , finally, most powerful of Henry VIII's coutiers.

'Dizzyingly, dazzlingly good' Daily Mail

'Terrifying. It is a world of marvels. But it is also a world of horrors, where screams are commonplace. A feast' Daily Telegraph

Hilary Mantel is one of Britain's most accomplished, acclaimed and garlanded writers. Sir Peter Stothard, Chair of the judges for the Man Booker Prize 2012, hailed her as 'the greatest modern English prose writer'. She is the author of thirteen books, including 'A Place of Greater Safety', 'Beyond Black', and the memoir 'Giving Up the Ghost'. Her two most recent novels, 'Wolf Hall' and its sequel 'Bring Up the Bodies' have both been awarded The Man Booker Prize. In 2014 she was made a Dame.
