About this title:
Synopsis:

Winner of the Man Booker Prize 2012

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, as well as being the first to win with two consecutive novels. Continuing what began in the Man Booker Prize-winning WOLF HALL, we return to the court of Henry VIII, to witness the irresistible rise of Thomas Cromwell as he contrives the destruction of Anne Boleyn.

By 1535 Cromwell is Chief Minister to Henry, his fortunes having risen with those of Anne Boleyn. But the split from the Catholic Church has left England dangerously isolated, and Anne has failed to give the king an heir. Cromwell watches as Henry falls for plain Jane Seymour. Negotiating the politics of the court, 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.


Review:

‘The greatest modern English prose writer working today’ Sir Peter Stothard, Chairman of the Man Booker Prize

‘“Bring Up the Bodies” is simply exceptional…I envy anyone who hasn’t yet read it’ Sandra Parsons, Daily Mail

‘A gripping story of tumbling fury and terror’ Philip Hensher, Independent on Sunday

‘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

‘Great novel – worthy companion to Wolf Hall … Hurry up with the third novel Hilary’ Daily Express

The Man Booker-winning sequel to the Man Booker-winning Wolf Hall. My boy Thomas, give him a dirty look and he ll gouge your eye out. Trip him, and he ll cut off your leg, says Walter Cromwell in the year 1500. But if you don t cut across him he s a very gentleman. And he ll stand anyone a drink. By 1535 Thomas Cromwell, the blacksmith s son, is far from his humble origins. Chief Minister to Henry VIII, his fortunes have risen with those of Anne Boleyn, Henry s second wife, for whose sake Henry has broken with Rome and created his own church. But Henry s actions have forced England into dangerous isolation, and Anne has failed to do what she promised: bear a son to secure the Tudor line. When Henry visits Wolf Hall, Cromwell watches as Henry falls in love with the silent, plain Jane Seymour. The minister sees what is at stake: not just the king s pleasure, but the safety of the nation. As he eases a way through the sexual politics of the court, its miasma of gossip, he must negotiate a truth that will satisfy Henry and secure his own career. But neither minister nor king will emerge undamaged from the bloody theatre of Anne s final days. In Bring up the Bodies , sequel to the Man Booker Prize-winning Wolf Hall , Hilary Mantel explores one of the most mystifying and frightening episodes in English history: the destruction of Anne Boleyn.
