A Novel by Hilary Mantel: Margaret Norwich

"Will it be An Experiment in Love? Or will we have the opportunity to reflect and illuminate the stunning portrait of Thomas Cromwell and his times that Hilary Mantel has given us in Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies? If the final volume of her trilogy, The Mirror and The Light, has been published, we will be delighted to study it closely, but if not, we will bring our own reflections to the earlier novel, published in 1995, which follows a bright Northern girl’s coming of age in 1970s London, confident that Hilary Mantel never disappoints! "
