BRING UP THE BODIES, winner of the 2012 Man Booker Prize, is the sequel to Hilary Mantel's WOLF HALL. Anne Boleyn has failed to give Henry a son, and her sharp intelligence and audacity will alienate his old friends and the noble families of England. When the discarded Katherine dies in exile from the court, Anne stands starkly exposed, the focus of gossip and malice. At a word from Henry, Thomas Cromwell is ready to bring her down.
