A boxed set of hardback editions of the bestselling and award winning trilogy: Wolf Hall, Bring Up the Bodies and The Mirror & the Light



Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall Trilogy - Wolf Hall, Bring Up the Bodies and The Mirror & the Light - traces the life of Thomas Cromwell, the boy from nowhere who climbs to the heights of power in Henry VIII's Tudor England. It offers a defining portrait of predator and prey, of a ferocious contest between present and past, between royal will and a common man's vision: of a modern nation making itself through conflict, passion and courage.

'The greatest English novels of this century' Observer

'Mantel has taken us to the dark heart of history ... and what a show' The Times

'A masterpiece that will keep yielding its riches' Guardian

Reviews

Praise for Wolf Hall:

'Dizzyingly, dazzlingly good . . . Hugely exciting, packed full of power struggles and political machinations, but also delightfully poetic, vivid in image and phrase. A rich and subtle wonder' Daily Mail

'Beautifully written and terrifying fiction. She makes that world so concrete you can smell the rain-drenched wool cloaks and feel the sharp fibres of rushes underfoot. It's a world of marvels' Daily Telegraph

'As soon as I opened this book I was gripped. I read it almost non-stop. When I did have to put it down, I was full of regret the story was over, a regret I still feel' The Times

Praise for Bring Up the Bodies:

'The greatest modern English prose writer writing today' Peter Stothard, Chairman of the 2012 Man Booker Prize

'In another league. This ongoing story of Henry VIII's right-hand man is the finest piece of historical fiction I have ever read . . . A staggering achievement' Sunday Telegraph

'Darkly magnificent . . . the finest work of historical fiction in contemporary literature' Washington Post

Praise for The Mirror and the Light:

'Hilary Mantel has written an epic of English history that does what the Aeneid did for the Romans and War and Peace for the Russians. We are lucky to have it.' Sunday Telegraph

'Very few writers manage not just to excavate the sedimented remains of the past, but bring them up again into the light and air so that they shine brightly once more before us. Hilary Mantel has done just that.' Simon Schama, Financial Times

'A masterpiece that will keep yielding its riches, changing as its readers change, going forward with us into the future' Guardian
