Product description

Review

"Mantel's writing is so exact and brilliant that, in itself, it seems an act of survival, even redemption."--Joan Acocella, "The New Yorker" "More people really need to get with the concept that Mantel is one of the best writers in England." --Zadie Smith, author of "On Beauty" "Brilliant, edgy historical fiction that captures the whiplash flux of the French Revolution with crisp immediacy on the page."--"The Seattle Times" "An epic of extraordinary detail and depth . . . [it] moves beyond the realm of an absorbing yarn into the arena of a literary masterpiece."--"Booklist" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
