From Nine To Noon, 10:32 am on 27 March 2020

Hannah August reviews The Mirror and the Light by Hilary Mantel, published by HarperCollins. The wheel of fortune turns for Thomas Cromwell in this conclusion to Mantel's brilliant trilogy about the life of the Tudor statesman. 882 pages of perfect self-isolation fare, immersing us in the mind of a man tasked with managing a Trumpian monarch while haunted by the ghosts of his past.
