Interiority — The Ineffable Art of Hillary Mantel and the Wolf Hall Trilogy

I read Wolf Hall the first of Hilary Mantel’s trilogy based on the life of Thomas Cromwell in 2010, an Englishman born a commoner in the 16th century. Cromwell rose to great power in the court of Henry VIII before meeting a tragic end — a chopped off head as many an ambitious person did in Henry’s rein including famously one his many queens — Anne Boleyn.
