Hilary Mantel – interview with Channel 4 News

In this clip, Krishnan Guru-Murthy interviews Hilary Mantel in the wake of her 2012 Booker Prize win for Bringing Up the Bodies. She discusses whether her handling of Thomas Cromwell is too sympathetic and considers the differences between the first two volumes of the trilogy. She also talks about how historical fiction is different from writing history and reflects on how her endometriosis has shaped her writing.

Anna Mercer will be talking to Catherine Fletcher, Emilie Murphy and Sophie Coulombeau about Hilary Mantel’s latest novel The Mirror and the The Light tomorrow evening via Zoom.
