The Guardian on Mantel's The Mirror & the Light: "Masterpiece," "Magnificent"


The third Cromwell book has been reviewed in The Guardian by Alexandra Harris, and to call it a rave would be an understatement. Harris writes, "Not since Bleak House has the present tense performed such magic." (Mantel, if I remember correctly, is not a big Dickens fan.) I really do hope Mantel wins a third Man Booker prize for it—I can't wait to tear through its 900 pages.
