Mantel’s (Wolf Hall, Bring Up the Bodies) Thomas Cromwell alternately soothes and schemes his way through the present and through dreams of times past, so seldom surprised by the actions of others that when he’s occasionally taken aback the reader is stunned. Uncanny in his understanding of women, of the ambition that drives humankind, and of the currents of history, his is a character of Shakespearean stature. As is Henry Tudor’s, arrogant, erratic, as insecure—and as cruel—as our present president. Brilliant, utterly involving and hundreds of glorious pages long, this is the perfect way to while away the coming hours, days, even weeks ahead, learning the lessons history has to teach in the process.
