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 coutiers.
‘Dizzyingly, dazzlingly good’ Daily Mail
‘Terrifying. It is a world of marvels. But it is also a world of horrors, where screams are commonplace. A feast’ Daily Telegraph
