Mantel has been awarded the celebrated Booker Prize twice– in 2009 for her guide ‘Wolf Hall’, which is a historic fiction novel on Thomas Cromwell’s rise to energy in Henry VIII’s courtroom; and in 2012 for the guide ‘Bring Up the Bodies’, which is the second novel within the Cromwell trilogy. Her third novel within the Cromwell trilogy, titled ‘The Mirror & the Light’, was longlisted for the Booker Prize 2020.
