Capturing Cromwell’s fall from grace, the final novel begins with him masterminding Anne Boleyn’s execution in 1536 and ends with his own beheading in 1540.Hilary Mantel promises: 'We walk the last miles of Cromwell’s life, ascending to unprecedented riches and honour and abruptly descending to the scaffold at Tower Hill.'
The double Man Booker Prize winning writer will reflect on piecing together Cromwell's rise and fall, and writing a book that critics and readers around the world have been feverishly anticipating. The 90 minute talk will span Mantel's prodigious career, encompassing the wit, psychological intensity and historical drama for which she has become famous.
