About the Event
Hilary won the Man Booker Prize for Fiction for her two most recent novels, Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies.
The bleak humour of her early social satires, the deep originality of novels that explore compelling psychological dramas with a cutting-edge gothic sensibility, the wit of her essays and the all-consuming power of her Cromwell novels add up to a career like nobody else’s.
In The Mirror and the Light, she traces the final years of Thomas Cromwell, the boy from nowhere who climbs to the heights of power.
The book offers a defining portrait of predator and prey, of a ferocious contest between present and past, between royal will and a common man’s vision. It’s the story of a modern nation making itself through conflict, passion and courage.
Hear from the author herself as she reflects on the finale of one of the most compelling and celebrated trilogies of modern times.
