Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall sequel 'will be published in 2012'

15th November 2011

The sequel to Hilary Mantel's critically acclaimed, Man Booker Prize-winning Wolf Hall is being written and will be released next year, the author's publisher has confirmed.

According to John Macrae Books, an imprint of Henry Holt and Company, the book will be titled Bring Up the Bodies and is set to continue to focus on the life of Henry VIII's adviser Thomas Cromwell.

Stephen Rubin, the president and publisher of Holt, told the New York Times the book is scheduled for release in the autumn of 2012 and described Mantel as 'a brilliant literary portraitist with a distinctive voice'.

'I share in the enthusiasm and anticipation of the many Wolf Hall readers who eagerly await the return to Cromwell's life in the tangled web of Tudor England and Hilary's vast imagination,' he added.

Published in 2009, Wolf Hall went on to win that year's Man Booker Prize, as well as the 2009 National Book Critics Circle Award and 2010 Walter Scott Prize for historical fiction.
