  • Jacket image for The Assassination Of Margaret Thatcher

    The Assassination Of Margaret Thatcher by Hilary Mantel

    Price: £14.99    Add to Basket

    In these ten bracingly subversive tales, all Mantel's gifts of characterisation and observation are fully engaged, summoning forth the horrors so often concealed behind everyday façades. Childhood cruelty is played out behind the bushes in 'Comma'; nurses clash in 'Harley Street' over something more than professional differences; and in the title story, staying in for the plumber turns into an ambiguous and potentially deadly waiting game.

    Whether set in a claustrophobic Saudi Arabian flat or on a precarious mountain road in Greece, these stories share an insight into the darkest recesses of the spirit. Displaying all of Mantel's unmistakable style and wit, they reveal a great writer at the peak of her powers.

    Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel

    Price: £9.99    Add to Basket
    The reliably brilliant sequel to Mantel's Booker-winning Wolf Hall. In Bring Up The Bodies, we are thrust into violent absolutism. On encountering Jane Seymour, Henry begins to doubt his relationship with Anne Boleyn, and Cromwell is ordered to conclude her story. As in Wolf Hall, Mantel pulls off the risky trick of present-tense narration; as we hurtle towards the inevitable end, our narrator is the only person who can't see it coming.
  • Jacket image for A Place of Greater Safety

    A Place of Greater Safety by Hilary Mantel

    Price: £9.99    Add to Basket
    Fans of Wolf Hall will find this remarkable dramatisation of the French Revolution as believable, gripping and wonderfully written as her recent Booker winner. Mantel describes a time of unimaginable horror through the eyes of three pivotal, real-life figures: Georges-Jacques Danton, Maximilien Robespierre and Camille Desmoulins.
  • Jacket image for 8 Months on Ghazzah Street

    8 Months on Ghazzah Street by Hilary Mantel

    Price: £8.99    Add to Basket
    The chilling story of a woman taken to Saudi Arabia by her husband's job. Unable to understand the regime, the people or even the hardened ex-patriates and confined to her flat, she begins to unravel becoming increasingly obsessed by the past events in the empty flat upstairs.

    Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel

    Price: £8.99    Add to Basket
    Rarely have we seen a Booker winner more well-liked than this remarkable, well-researched account of Thomas Cromwell's rise to power. Becoming used to Mantel's technique of writing in the present tense takes some dedication but it is well-worth the perseverance. If you would like to hear the author talk more about her work then take a look at this video of her at Daunt Books.
