писатели и журналисты в Guardian о книгах года, очень познавательно.

что до меня, то вслед за изумительными портретами Хилари Мантел, я и в самом деле хочу теперь узнать еще больше об их отцах и предшественниках:

[A] chilling and enticing portrait of Henry VII, the founder of the Tudor dynasty that created a centralised English state. Well written and well researched, the book helps us understand why Shakespeare decided to give this Henry a miss. It would have been difficult to prettify him. The Royal National Theatre should seek to remedy this omission rapidly: Winter King has a very modern feel.
