Bring Up the Bodies

by Hilary Mantel

Winner of the Man Booker Prize, the Costa Novel Award and the Costa Book of the Year Award for 2012. Shortlisted for both the Women's Prize for Fiction for 2013 and the Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards The John Murray Listener's Choice Book of the Year Award for 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 (her first was for 'Wolf Hall' in 2009). By 1535 Thomas Cromwell is Chief Minister to Henry VIII, his fortunes having risen with those of Anne Boleyn, the king's new wife. But Anne has failed to give the king an heir, and Cromwell watches as Henry falls for plain Jane Seymour. 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.
