Description

From the double Man Booker prize-winning author of Wolf Hall, Bring Up the Bodiesand The Mirror & the Light comes an extraordinary work of historical imagination – this is Hilary Mantel’s epic novel of the French Revolution.

Georges-Jacques Danton: zealous, energetic and debt-ridden. Maximilien Robespierre: small, diligent and terrified of violence. And Camille Desmoulins: a genius of rhetoric, charming and handsome, yet also erratic and untrustworthy. As these young men, key figures of the French Revolution, taste the addictive delights of power, the darker side of the period’s political ideals is unleashed – and all must face the horror that follows.
