| No TrackBacks
Hilary Mantel has been named as the winner of the 2012 Man Booker Prize for her novel Bring Up the Bodies.

In the process Mantel has achieved a number of milestones: she is only the third author to win the prize twice (following J.M. Coetzee and Peter Carey), the first woman and the first British author to do so.  She also becomes the first to win for a sequel to another winner.  She previously won the award in 2009 for Wolf Hall.
