Reviews

"Mantel's writing is so exact and brilliant that, in itself, it seems an act of survival, even redemption." --Joan Acocella, The New Yorker

"More people really need to get with the concept that Mantel is one of the best writers in England." --Zadie Smith, author of On Beauty

"Brilliant, edgy historical fiction that captures the whiplash flux of the French Revolution with crisp immediacy on the page." --The Seattle Times

"An epic of extraordinary detail and depth . . . [it] moves beyond the realm of an absorbing yarn into the arena of a literary masterpiece." --Booklist
