Wolf Hall

wolf hall

An article in the Wall Street Journal about Hilary Mantel’s trilogy (she is currently working on the third book – The Mirror and the Light) about Thomas Cromwell and his relationship with Henry the VIII made me wonder if other authors have had not only a Broadway show (actually two shows – Wolf Hall Part 1 and Part 2) but a TV series made from their books before they have finished writing them.  (no answer – just wondering)  But if you haven’t read Wolf Hall – the first – or Bring Up the Bodies, the second, I highly recommend them.  Mantel does a masterful job of showing the change it creates in Cromwell as he accedes to Henry’s increasingly odious demands.  And if you haven’t read them, you still have time if you hurry before the PBS series begins on April 5 (an Easter treat).
