Hilary Mantel wins Man Booker Prize for Bring Up the Bodies
Hilary Mantel has won the prestigious Man Booker Prize for her novel Bring Up the Bodies, the second book in her fictional Thomas Cromwell trilogy.
She made reference to her previous Man Booker win in 2009 in her acceptance speech and said she would now go and write the third part of the trilogy.
The impact on sales for a Man Booker winner is considerable - every winning book since 1996 has grossed more than £1m.
