Hilary Mantel and Maggie O’Farrell have both made the six-book shortlist for the Women’s Prize for Fiction, 2020. Maggie O’Farrell’s eighth novel, Hamnet, has been critically lauded, while the publication of Hilary Mantel’s The Mirror & the Light has been heralded as the book event of the decade.

Congratulations to Maggie and Hilary! Two glorious historical novels to sink your teeth into, if you haven’t yet.

‘Publishing event of the decade?’

Publication day is finally here! Hilary Mantel’s eagerly awaited novel, The Mirror & the Light, is now in bookshops and we couldn’t be more thrilled that readers around the world now get to enjoy the final instalment of the double-Booker winning Wolf Hall trilogy.

In a move that brought anticipation and excitement for the book to fever pitch, the cover of The Mirror & the Light was projected onto The Tower of London last night, perhaps fulfilling James Daunt’s prediction that this would be the publishing event of the decade.
