Praise for Bring Up The Bodies

“One of the greatest achievements of modern literature.”
—Man Booker Committee
“Mantel knows what to select, how to make her scenes vivid, how to kindle her characters. She seems almost incapable of abstraction or fraudulence; she instinctively grabs for the reachably real...In short, this novelist has the maddeningly unteachable gift of being interesting.”
—James Wood, The New Yorker
Bring Up the Bodies is beautifully constructed....The wonder of Ms. Mantel’s retelling is that she makes these events fresh and terrifying all over again.”
—Janet Maslin, The New York Times
Bring Up the Bodies isn’t just her boldest book; it’s also her best — and it reaffirms Mantel’s reputation as one of England’s greatest living novelists.””
—Michael Schaub, NPR
“The finest works of historical fiction in contemporary literature.”
—Wendy Smith, The Washington Post
“[Bring Up the Bodies] is astringent and purifying, stripping away the cobwebs and varnish of history, the antique formulations and brocaded sentimentality of costume drama novels, so that the English past comes to seem like something vivid, strange and brand new.”
The New York Times Book Review
