NPR Interview with Hilary Mantel

Having recently won her second Booker prize, Hilary Mantel appeared on Terry Gross‘ show to discuss her latest book, Bring Up the Bodies.  This work is a sequel to Wolf Hall, which also won the prestigious award. When asked about her focus on Cromwell and Tudor England, Mantel responded that historians have always realized how central he was to Henry VIII’s time, but popular audiences tend to think of other figures as being more important. Enlightening talk from both a historical and a literary perspective.
