Hilary Mantel has won the Costa Book Prize with her book Bring Up The Bodies. Here’s what she said in her acceptance speech:
*”There was an article in the press a couple of days ago which suggested Thomas Cromwell and I were moving over the writing of England flattening young talent like a steamroller… and if I won any more awards, I’d have to start apologising… I’m not going to apologise, and I will make it my business to write more books that will be worth prizes.”
What do you think? Should Hilary Mantel apologise and is she flattening young talent like a steamroller?
