A stunning collection of essays and memoir from twice Booker Prize winner and international bestseller Hilary Mantel; author of The Mirror and the Light In 1987; when Hilary Mantel was first published in the London Review of Books; she wrote to the editor; Karl Miller; 'I have no critical training whatsoever; so I am forced to be more brisk and breezy than scholarly.' This collection of twenty reviews; essays and pieces of memoir from the next three decades; tells the story of what happened next. Her subjects range far and wide: Robespierre and Danton; the Hite report; Saudi Arabia where she lived for four years in the 1980s; the Bulger case; John Osborne; the Virgin Mary as well as the pop icon Madonna; a brilliant examination of Helen Duncan; Britain's last witch. There are essays about Jane Boleyn; Charles Brandon; Christopher Marlowe and Margaret Pole; which display the astonishing insight into the Tudor mind we are familiar with from the bestselling Wolf Hall Trilogy. Her famous lecture; 'Royal Bodies'; which caused a media frenzy; explores the place of royal women in society and our imagination. Here too are some of her LRB diaries; including her first meeting with her stepfather and a confrontation with a circus strongman. Constantly illuminating; always penetrating and often very funny; interleaved with letters and other ephemera gathered from the archive; Mantel Pieces is an irresistible selection from one of our greatest living writers.
