Two-time Man Booker Prize winner Hilary Mantel may seem like an overnight success to her recently acquired fans on this side of the Atlantic, but she’s been a working novelist for over 25 years. Bob talks with Mantel about her career and the success she’s found by telling the story of Henry VIII’s England in Wolf Hall and her latest Bring Up the Bodies.
Then, The New Yorker calls How A Person Should Be by first-time novelist Sheila Heti “..a vital and funny picture of the excitements and longueurs of trying to be a young creator in a free, late-capitalist Western City.” Bob talks to Heti about the book and her promising career.
