Wolf Hall - Hilary Mantel

It is the absence of facts that frightens people: the gap you open, into which they pour their fears, fantasies, desires. 

 

Hilary Mantel

 

Happy 65th birthday, Hilary Mantel. The author of Wolf Hall and Bringing Up the Bodies, two books in a trilogy based on the life of Thomas Cromwell, announced upon winning the Man Booker that she would be using the prize money on "sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll."
