Hilary Mandel, the British author best known for the award-winning historical trilogy “Wolf Hall”, died yesterday, Thursday, at the age of 70, the publishing house that published her books announced on Twitter today.

Mandel was twice awarded the Man Booker Prize for “Wolf Hall” (“Wolf Hall”) and “Bring up the Bodies”, the first two books of the trilogy. The latest in the series, ‘The Mirror & the Light’, was released in March 2020.

“We are devastated by the death of our beloved author Dame Hilary Mandel and our thoughts are with her friends and family, especially her husband Gerald,” 4th Estate Books said in a statement.

“It’s a huge loss and we can only be grateful that he left us with such a great body of work.”

The Wolf Hall trilogy, made into a series by the BBC, tells the story of Thomas Cromwell and his impetuous rise from the streets of London to minister to King Henry VIII.

Born in 1952 in Derbyshire (central England), in a family of Irish origin, Hilary Mandel (her maiden name was Thomson) grew up with the ‘disadvantage’ of being “a woman, from the North and poor”, she wrote in the book of personal memories “Giving Up the Ghost” released in 2003.
