Wolf Hall wins NBCC 2009 fiction award

12th March 2010

Hilary Mantel has won another prestigious award for her acclaimed historical novel Wolf Hall.

The work has been named the fiction winner in the National Book Critics Circle's (NBCC's) 2009 awards, which seek to recognise excellence in books and reviews published in English.

Commenting on the novel, NBCC board member Linda Wolfe said: 'Mantel is a magician, with all kinds of literary chicanery up her sleeve. Her Wolf Hall is one sly triumph of a book.'

Wolf Hall won the GBP 50,000 Man Booker Prize for Fiction last year and Mantel recently told the Oxford Times that she intends to write a sequel which will change the way people think about Thomas Cromwell.

Other winners in the NBCC's awards include The Age of Wonder by Richard Holmes for nonfiction, Diana Athill's Somewhere Towards the End in autobiography and Cheever by Blake Bailey in biography.

Meanwhile, Eula Biss' Notes from No Man's Land won the criticism honour and Versed by Rae Armentrout took home the poetry prize.
