Winner of the Man Booker Prize 2012
To celebrate the double Man Booker prize-winning Hilary Mantel's unparalleled achievement, 4th Estate presents a signed, limited, numbered first edition of `Bring Up the Bodies'.
The book is housed in a black, cloth-covered slipcase and features the golden falcon emblem. The jacket design is based on the famous `B necklace' portrait of Anne Boleyn. Printed on superior-quality paper and including head and tail bands, a ribbon marker and foiled endpapers - only 1000 of these special editions will be released.
`Bring Up the Bodies' continues what began in the Man Booker Prize-winning `Wolf Hall'; we return to the court of Henry VIII, to witness the irresistible rise of Thomas Cromwell. An astounding literary accomplishment, `Bring Up the Bodies' is the story of a most terrifying moment of history, by one of our greatest living novelists.
Hilary Mantel is the author of thirteen books , including A PLACE OF GREATER SAFETY, BEYOND BLACK, and the memoir GIVING UP THE GHOST. Her two most recent novels, WOLF HALL and its sequel BRING UP THE BODIES, have both been awarded The Man Booker Prize - an unprecedented achievement.
