Hilary Mantel Becomes Repeat Winner of $81,000 Man Booker

Hilary Mantel won the Man Booker Prize last night with “Bring Up the Bodies,” the second installment in her Thomas Cromwell trilogy, which began with 2009’s winner, “Wolf Hall.”

She’s the first woman and first British author to be given the award twice, and the first to win for two books in a row.
