About the Author

Hilary Mantel was born in Derbyshire. She was educated at a convent and later studied law. After ten years abroad in Africa and the Middle East, she returned to Britain in 1985 to make a career as a writer. She is the author of eight novels. Her memoir, Giving Up the Ghost, and a collection of short stories, Learning To Talk, were published in 2003.

Reviews

'Fludd is a funny, exquisitely written story of priests and nuns in fifties England, but it is also a questioning, intellectual book that applies a profound thoughtfulness to various abtruse areas of religious (or supernatural) belief ... A faultless comic masterpiece.' Literary Review 'Good morality tales are unusual; but rarer still are books that genuinely make you laugh out loud.' Spectator 'Hilary Mantel brings together the miraculous and mundane, the dreadful and the ridiculous in a novel of imagination and skill.' Financial Times 'In Fludd, Mantel draws on her own imagination, inventing a dark universe which works to laws of her own making. The effect is dazzling, and establishes her in the front ranks of novelists writing in English today.' Guardian 'An excellent and ambitious novel.' Sunday Times
