-- The Book People is currently offering a set of Hilary Mantel's prize winning titles for just GBP7.99, along with a collection of shortlisted 2012 Man Booker Prize titles for GBP29.99.
This year Hilary Mantel made history by becoming the first woman to ever receive the award for the Man Booker Prize twice. In 2009 her novel 'Wolf Hall', part of the Thomas Cromwell Trilogy, came out on top in the award and, this year, the second book in the trilogy won her the award again.
Hilary Mantel is without a doubt one of the finest female authors in the UK at present and her new prize-winning status only works to confirm what many already knew. Her Thomas Cromwell Trilogy has been referred to as one of the best historical trilogies ever written, and 'Wolf Hall', the first in the set, is a fictional biography of Thomas Cromwell and his rise from a working class boy to the chief minister of King Henry VIII of England. The following titles in the trilogy, 'Bring up the Bodies' and 'The Mirror and the Light' (which is still in progress) continue Thomas Cromwell's story.
To celebrate Hilary Mantel's historic win, the Book People has a special Hilary Mantel three book collection available for just ?7.99, which is worth ?27.97 and so customers can save a huge ?19.98 when buying these cheap books
. The collection contains the author's first Man Booker Prize-winning title, 'Wolf Hall', along with her novels 'Beyond Black', which was shortlisted for the 2005 Orange Prize, and 'A Place of Greater Safety', which was crowned the Sunday Express Book of the Year in 1992.
The Book People's Man Booker Prize Shortlist 2012 collection would normally cost a whopping ?89.96, but it's available for just ?29.99 on the best online bookstore
, which saves customers ?59.97. The collection contains all six of the shortlisted books
, including 'Bring up the Bodies' by Hilary Mantel, 'Umbrella' by Will Self, 'The Lighthouse' by Alison Moore, 'Swimming Home' by Deborah Levy, 'Narcopolis' by Jeet Thayil and 'The Garden of Evening Mists' by Tan Twan Eng.
Book People Publicity Manager, Donna Stevenson said: "We at the Book People are very impressed by Hilary Mantel's latest novel and congratulate her on her most recent win, but the remaining shortlisted authors for the Man Booker Prize also deserve recognition for their achievements.
"Customers can read all six of the shortlisted books thanks to our collection and can then decide who they would have given the award to. Any fans of Hilary Mantel's works may also be interested in our collection of three of her works, which is available at a highly reduced price now."
