Wolf Hall

Hilary Mantel

Why I looked at this book

Hilary Mantel tells the story of Thomas Cromwell's rise to power. I'm interested in what qualities Cromwell had which enabled him to get ahead, and in how he secured his power as he approached the top, which may be relevant in today's unequal world.
