"Bring Up The Bodies" Reading and Discussion
The sequel to Hilary Mantel's "Wolf Hall" will be released next week. It promises to be an amazing reading experience. "Wolf Hall" has become my favourite book of all time. Its literary expressiveness, rich themes, exquisite language and of course, beloved subject has made it an incomparable book, and now, after reading it three times in a row this past months, I am on pins and needles waiting for my copy of the sequel to arrive.
I hope others are excited by this book as well and would like to discuss it here.
The American edition shows a close up of the standard portrait of Anne Boleyn but softened. Here is the link :
By the way, the title refers to a summons by the justices at Westminster, to the Constable of the Tower to "bring up the bodies of Sir Francis Weston, knt, Henry Norris, Esq., William Brereton, Esq., and Mark Smeaton, gent," for trial.

"Bring Up The Bodies" scheduled for Publication May 19th
Hillary Mantel's sequel to "Wolf Hall" is scheduled to be published in the UK on May 19th and in the US three days later on May 22nd.
That date is of course very meaningful to us Tudor fans: it is, of course, the anniversary of the execution of Anne Boleyn.
The sequel will focus on Anne's downfall.
This is an ongoing controversy here on our beloved Wiki, so it will be very interesting to see how MS Mantel handles it.
