Hilary Mantel will discuss The Mirror and the Light, the final volume in her Thomas Cromwell trilogy.
About this Event
These three novels, including Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies, chronicle a time in which Henry VIII’s appetite for marriage plunged England into religious turmoil, and create a fascinating portrait of the mercurial Cromwell. The Mirror and the Light concludes Mantel’s story of Cromwell’s rise to power as the volatile king’s right-hand man, and his inevitable fall from grace.
This epic tale of power, faith and Englishness, earned a huge and devoted readership, two Booker prizes and adaptations for stage and TV. As The Mirror and The Light is released in paperback, one of our greatest living writers will join Alex Clark to reflect on this remarkable literary project.
