How We Made: Wolf Hall with Hilary Mantel

The Waterstones Podcast

The first in a new series that discovers the story behind books which went on to become prize-winners, trail-blazers, or are now seen as modern classics. We speak exclusively with Dame Hilary Mantel and her editor, Nicholas Pearson, about Wolf Hall, the first part of her Cromwell trilogy which not only won the Booker Prize but set up a series of books that went on to become a unique cultural moment at their conclusion. We hear how plans for one book became three, what it felt like to win the Booker Prize, twice, and how she feels now looking back on a 15 year project. Featuring: Hilary Mantel, Nicholas Pearson, Bea Carvalho

Three Authors Discuss Hilary Mantel's THE MIRROR AND THE LIGHT

It's Just Historical

I had a really wonderful chat with two of my favorite historical novelists! Anne Easter Smith, most recently author of This Son of York, along with five other books that take place in England during the Wars of the Roses; and Patricia Bracewell, author of the Emma of Normandy trilogy about Anglo Saxon Britain. The third volume, The Steel Beneath the Silk is out March 2! Both are published by Bellastoria Press.So here's the thing: We all agree that Hilary Mantel is a remarkable writer, but one of us didn't love The Mirror and the Light, the final book in the trilogy about Thomas Cromwell. The first two books were Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies, which have been made into wonderful TV series starring Mark Rylance as Cromwell. Want to find out who thinks what? Listen!
