Mantel Makes History with 2nd Booker Prize

October 18, 2012

Hilary Mantel was awarded the Booker Prize yesterday for Bring up the Bodies. She won her first prize in 2009 for Wolf Hall and this is the first time an author has been recognized for a sequel. She also is the only author to win twice in a such a short period. The novels are historical fiction based on the life of  Thomas Cromwell, Henry VIII’s chief minister.
