LONDON — Hilary Mantel, the Booker Prize-winning creator of the acclaimed “Wolf Corridor” saga, has died. She was 70.
Mantel died “out of the blue but peacefully” surrounded by shut household and associates, writer HarperCollins stated Friday.
Mantel is credited with reenergizing historic fiction with “Wolf Corridor” and two sequels concerning the Sixteenth-century English powerbroker Thomas Cromwell.
The writer stated Mantel was “one of many best English novelists of this century.”
“Her beloved works are thought-about trendy classics. She might be enormously missed,” it stated in an announcement.
Mantel gained the Booker Prize twice, for “Wolf Corridor” in 2009 and its sequel “Deliver Up the Our bodies” in 2012. Each have been tailored for the stage and tv.
The ultimate instalment, “The Mirror and the Mild,” was revealed in 2020.
