Hilary Mantel John Haynes

Man Booker Prize Winner

Hilary Mantel is the two-time winner of the Man Booker Prize for her best-selling novels, Wolf Hall, and its sequel, Bring Up the Bodies—an unprecedented achievement. The Royal Shakespeare Company recently adapted Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies for the stage to colossal critical acclaim. The two productions, which run at the Swan Theater in Stratford-upon-Avon until March 29th have been sold out for months. Those without tickets can look forward to the BBC/Masterpiece six part adaption of the novels, which will broadcast in the Spring of 2015 with "Homeland" actor, Damien Lewis, to star as Henry VII and Mark Rylance to portray Thomas Cromwell.


The author of thirteen books, including A Place of Greater Safety, Beyond Black, and the memoir Giving up the Ghost, she is currently at work on the third installment of the Thomas Cromwell Trilogy.

Stephen King meets Muriel Spark in Hilary Mantel's first novel.

Evelyn Axona-medium by trade-and her half-wit daughter Muriel have become a social problem. Barricaded in their once-respectable house, they live amid festering rubbish, unhealthy smells-and secrets. They completely baffle Isabel Field, the social worker assigned to help them. But Isabel is only the most recent in a long line of people that find the Axons impossible. Meanwhile, Isabel has her own problems: a married lover, Colin. He is a history teacher to unresponsive children and father to a passel of his own horrible kids. With all this to worry about, how can Isabel even begin to understand what is going on in the Axon household? When Evelyn finally moves to def Muriel, and Muriel, in turn, acts to protect herself, the results are by turns hilarious and terrifying.
