Man Bookerprisen 2012 er uddelt

Det blev den tresårige britiske forfatter Hilary Mantel, som i går fik den prestigefyldte Man Bookerpris i år for romanen Bring up the bodies. Det er en fortsættelse af hendes Wolf Hall fra 2009 (udgivet på dansk med samme titel i 2010). For at det ikke skal være løgn vandt Hilary Mantel også Man Bookerprisen for Wolf Hall  i 2009!
Beskrivelsen af Bring up the bodies, der foregår i 1500-tallets England lyder i de danske bibliotekers præsentation:
"Though he battled for seven years to marry her, Henry is disenchanted with Anne Boleyn. She has failed to give him a son and her sharp intelligence and audacious will alienate his old friends and the noble families of England. When the discarded Katherine dies in exile from the court, Anne stands starkly exposed, the focus of gossip and malice. At a word from Henry, Thomas Cromwell is ready to bring her down. Over three terrifying weeks, Anne is ensnared in a web of conspiracy, while the demure Jane Seymour stands waiting her turn for the poisoned wedding ring. But Anne and her powerful family will not yield without a ferocious struggle. To defeat the Boleyns, Cromwell must ally with his natural enemies, the papist aristocracy. What price will he pay for Anne's head?".
Bogen udkommer på dansk oversat af Svend Ranild omkring 1. marts 2013 på Forlaget Rosenkilde & Bahnhof.
