Hilary Mantel on Anne Boleyn

Hilary Mantel, who won the Booker Prize with "Wolf Hall", her story of Thomas Cromwell and the Tudor court, has now written a sequel, "Bringing up the Bodies", which focuses on the introduction of Jane Seymour to the court and the unravelling of Henry VIII's relationship with Anne Boleyn. You can read a review of the new book here, and also an excellent article by Mantel on Anne Boleyn ("Witch, bitch, temptress, feminist") and the public's perception of her.
