Parts one and two of Hilary Mantel’s award-winning Wolf Hall trilogy, brought together for the first time in audio.

In Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall trilogy, one of our very best writers brings the opulent world of the Tudors to bloody, glittering life. It is the backdrop to the rise and rise of Thomas Cromwell: lowborn boy, charmer, bully, master of deadly intrigue, and, finally, most powerful of Henry VIII’s coutiers. But the bloody theatre of Cromwell’s ascension will leave no one unscathed.

This collection includes expertly adapted versions of Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies, alongside The World of Wolf Hall, a listening guide which explores the key themes and historical context of the novels and offers listening group questions to discuss.

Read by Dan Stevens, Julian Rhind-Tutt, and Anna Bentinck.
