Product description

Review

Thomas Cromwell has famously defied his biographers, but no more. Diarmaid MacCulloch's book is subtle, witty and precisely constructed. He has sifted the vast archive to clear away the accumulated error, muddle and propaganda of centuries, allowing us to see this clever and fascinating man better than ever before, and in the mirror of his times. This is the biography we have been awaiting for 400 years (Hilary Mantel)

Balances a wealth of particular detail with a consistent grasp on the larger story, and holds the attention for the whole of its formidable length ... a model of classical historical biography at its finest (Rowan Williams New Statesman)

Triumphant and definitive ... a masterpiece of documentary detective-work, which buzzes with the excitement of a great historian immersed in archives (Dan Jones Sunday Times)

Anyone looking for the true story of Wolf Hall will be challenged, but also mightily rewarded (Jessie Childs Guardian)

MacCulloch's skill is to introduce even the general reader to the thrill of a historian's process ... and, golly, can MacCulloch make a Tudor paper-trail seem exciting (Kate Maltby Financial Times)

Meticulous and magisterial ... If this is not the definitive biography, I don't know what that would look like (Peter Marshall Literary Review)

Thrilling ... A human drama replete with sickening bloodshed, intrigue, torture and treachery (Robert McCrum Observer)

Captivating and definitive ... MacCulloch gives us depth and perspective on the contradictions and inconsistencies of a man who improvised just as much as he choreographed his way to power (Marcus Nevitt Spectator)

This book is the counter-weight to fiction and speculation, a formidably detailed and precise account ... This book is the work of an internationally renowned historian at the top of his game (Lucy Wooding Times Literary Supplement)

Book Description

Diarmaid MacCulloch's biography is the most complete life ever written of this elusive figure, making connections not previously seen and revealing the channels through which power in early Tudor England flowed.
