Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
Wolf Hall

PJH, January 19, 2012

Mantel's Wolf Hall transcends the melodrama that continues to permeate most works involving the life and times of Henry VIII. Her beautiful prose reveals politics, religion, and the ruling class and infuses reality into these inimitable historic figures. This book made me think, consider, read some more, and ruminate on how our human foibles influence all our actions.
