Writers & Company revisits Eleanor Wachtel’s 2012 conversation with one of England’s great novelists, Hilary Mantel, who died on Sept. 22, 2022. She was 70. Mantel was one of the few writers to win the Booker Prize twice — first in 2009 for Wolf Hall, and again in 2012 for its sequel, Bring Up the Bodies. She talked to Eleanor Wachtel about historical fiction, power and violence, and her fascination with Thomas Cromwell, the man at the centre of her sensational Tudor England saga.
