Man Booker Prize has announced its winner for this year. English author Hilary Mantel has been given £50,000 for her novel ‘Wolf hall’.
"Set in England during the reign of King VIII, Mantel explores the political and religious scandel surrounding his desire to marry Anne Boleyn in search of a male heir. She does this through the eyes of an unlikely sympathetic protagonist Thomas Moore, who engineered the English Reformation."
Parramatta City Library has copies of Wolf hall available for loan.
