Hilary Mantel, British author of ‘Wolf Hall’ saga, dies at 70

LONDON — Hilary Mantel, Booker Prize-winning author of the acclaimed “Wolf Hall” saga, has died. She was 70 years old.

Mantel died “suddenly but peacefully” surrounded by family and close friends, publisher HarperCollins said Friday.

Mantel is credited with re-energizing historical fiction with “Wolf Hall” and two sequels about 16th-century English powerbroker Thomas Cromwell.

The publisher said Mantel was “one of the greatest English novelists of this century”.

“His beloved works are considered modern classics. She will be sorely missed,” she said in a statement.

Mantel won the Booker Prize twice, for “Wolf Hall” in 2009 and its sequel “Bring Up the Bodies” in 2012. Both have been adapted for stage and television.

The final part, “The Mirror and the Light”, was published in 2020.
