Hilary Mantel Claims Another Award

Bring up the Bodies Book CoverThe accolades continue to pour in for Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel, as it was announced yesterday that the book was named 2012 Costa Book of the Year.

In addition to the Costa, which celebrates books by writers based in the UK and Ireland, Mantel's Bring Up the Bodies also claimed the illustrious Man Booker Prize, which honors authors in the British Commonwealth and Ireland.

In 2009, Mantel won the Man Booker for the first book in this trilogy, Wolf Hall. By winning the Costa, she is the first novelist to win both the Man Booker and Costa awards.
