#bookaday Day 3: Favorite Book by a 2014 Cheltenham Literature Festival Author

Wolf Hall - Hilary Mantel

It turns out that there's a lot going on at this literary festival that I had not previously heard of! Still, I have to go with Hilary Mantel's innovative and intelligent Wolf Hall. Wonderful, brilliant book that makes you look at Thomas Cromwell in a whole new light.
