Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies

£32.99

Product description

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. 'Wolf Hall' and 'Bring Up the Bodies', both winners of The Man Booker Prize, in 2009 and 2012 respectively, are the first two instalments in Hilary Mantel's Tudor trilogy. They have gathered readers and praise in equal and enormous measure. They have been credited with elevating historical fiction to new heights and animating a period of history many thought too well known to be made fresh. Through the eyes and ears of Thomas Cromwell, the books' narrative prism, we are shown Tudor England, the court of King Henry VIII. 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. In 'Wolf Hall' we witness Cromwell's rise, beginning as clerk to Cardinal Wolsey, Henry's chief advisor, charged with securing the divorce the pope refuses to grant. He is soon to become his successor. By 1535, when the action of 'Bring Up the Bodies' begins, Cromwell is Chief Minister to Henry, his fortunes having risen with those of Anne Boleyn, Henry's second wife. Anne's days, though, are marked. Cromwell watches as the king falls in love with silent, plain Jane Seymour, sensing what Henry's affection will mean for his queen, for England, and for himself.
