Pitting himself against parliament, the political establishment and the papacy, he is prepared to reshape England to his own and Henry's desires. In inimitable style, Hilary Mantel presents a picture of a half-made society on the cusp of change, where individuals fight or embrace their fate with passion and courage.

  • "England im Jahr 1520: Das Königreich ist nur einen Pulsschlag von der Katastrophe entfernt. Sollte der König ohne männlichen Erben sterben, würde das Land durch einen Bürgerkrieg verwüstet. Henry VIII. möchte seine Ehe annullieren lassen und Anne Boleyn heiraten. Der Papst und ganz Europa sind dagegen. Die Scheidungsabsichten des Königs schaffen ein Machtvakuum, in das Thomas Cromwell tritt: Die Werkzeuge dieses politischen Genies sind Bestechung, Einschüchterung und Charme. Aus der Asche persönlichen Unglücks steigt er auf und bahnt sich seinen Weg durch die Fallstricke des Hofes, an dem "der Mensch des Menschen Wolf" ist. Hilary Mantel hat mit Wölfe etwas sehr Rares geschaffen: einen wahrhaft großen Roman, der seinem historischen Gewand zum Trotz höchst zeitgemäß ist. Auf einzigartige Weise erforscht er die Choreografie der Macht. "Hieb- und stichfest ausgedacht und doch voll schauriger Anklänge, stellenweise auch sehr witzig sobald der Leser dieses 766-Seiten-Buch fertig gelesen hat, will er mehr." The Guardian"

  • "'Lock Cromwell in a deep dungeon in the morning,' says Thomas More, 'and when you come back that night he'll be sitting on a plush cushion eating larks' tongues, and all the gaolers will owe him money.' England, the 1520s. Henry VIII is on the throne, but has no heir. Cardinal Wolsey is his chief advisor, charged with securing the divorce the pope refuses to grant. Into this atmosphere of distrust and need comes Thomas Cromwell, first as Wolsey's clerk, and later his successor. Cromwell is a wholly original man: the son of a brutal blacksmith, a political genius, a briber, a charmer, a bully, a man with a delicate and deadly expertise in manipulating people and events. Ruthless in pursuit of his own interests, he is as ambitious in his wider politics as he is for himself. His reforming agenda is carried out in the grip of a self-interested parliament and a king who fluctuates between romantic passions and murderous rages."

  • "Winners of the Man Booker Prize and hugely successful stage plays in London's West End and on Broadway, Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies bring history to life for a whole new audience having now been adapted into a six-part television series by the BBC and PBS Masterpiece. England in the 1520s is a heartbeat from disaster. If the king dies without a male heir, the country could be destroyed by civil war. Henry VIII wants to annul his marriage of twenty years and marry Anne Boleyn. The pope and most of Europe oppose him. Into this impasse steps Thomas Cromwell: a wholly original man, a charmer and a bully, both idealist and opportunist, master of deadly intrigue, and implacable in his ambition."@en

His reforming agenda is carried out in the grip of a self-interested parliament and a king who fluctuates between romantic passions and murderous rages. From one of our finest living writers, 'Wolf Hall' is that very rare thing: a truly great English novel, one that explores the intersection of individual psychology and wider politics. With a vast array of characters, and richly overflowing with incident, it peels back history to show us Tudor England as a half-made society, moulding itself with great passion, suffering and courage."
