Synopsis

Bookseller Ray says "I'm not even a great fan of historical fiction, but this is on another level. A view into the past that reveals 'Modern Politics' in the making. An absolute must read."

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 courtiers.
