For fans of Hilary Mantel
If you’re keen to read the Mirror and the Light, the final part in the Wolf Hall trilogy about Thomas Cromwell’s life and times, it’s now out and already the UK’s number 1. Buy it! But maybe do a few bicep curls to warm up before you try to read it. It is 904 pages of dense beautifully composed text, in every sense.
Last Friday at the Royal Festival Hall Hilary Mantel was in conversation with Alex Clark, a journalist, and via presubmitted questions, with the audience. It was a wonderful evening, especially the readings from all parts of the trilogy.
Here is a blog post about it if you want to know more: https://laurellindstrom.org/my-blog/
