This is terrible news. I think about her Royal Bodies lecture all the time; the way she brought to Desmoulins and Robespierre to life; her essay on anorexic saints, Some Girls Want Out; the hideousness of the ghosts in Beyond Black. Just a phenomenal writer and thinker..
Surprised (not really a surprise), Stacey Abrams supports killing black babies, a GODDAMN GENOCIDE!!!! This woman is absolutely AWFUL! Meanwhile, she incentivizes illegal immigrants to have children. I am BEYOND disgusted!.
Very sad news. The Wolf Hall trilogy was her masterpiece but she wrote so many brilliant works. I read several of her books in lockdown, including Beyond Black, Giving Up the Ghost and her French Revolution epic A Place of Greater Safety. She was an extraordinary talent..
I am extremely sad. Was just talking about Beyond Black with her translator. It’s my favorite of her books, which are all haunted..
Beyond Black and her hallucinatory writing on her illness stand out for me, if Wolf Hall feel too daunting..
Awful news. My favourites of hers are ‘Beyond Black’ and ‘Fludd’, which should’ve got her the wide renown a bit earlier..
Which is the spookiest Mantel novel? My money is on Beyond Black because I cldnt really sleep. Witches and demons in Aldershot. But wld also recommend 8 Months on Ghazzah Street the Saudi one for massive creepiness..
And so much more – the Wolf Hall trilogy is brilliant but it has eclipsed the massive range and imagination of her earlier work – Fludd, A Change of Climate, Beyond Black – spanning genres as diverse as black comedy, family drama, supernatural and psychological thriller.
@MinxMarple I can still remember exactly where I was when I read the first chapter of Beyond Black..
What an incredible body of work Dame Hilary Mantel leaves us. The thrill of reading Wolf Hall and feeling like the novel had been re-invented; the disturbing compelling unease of Beyond Black; the crisp, brilliantly astute non-fiction on contemporary life and so much more..
What a huge loss. Despite her magisterial Wolf Hall trilogy it’s Beyond Black and Giving up the Ghost that I’ll go straight back to now. How we live with lifelong loss, gaps, lost chances and how women and children are haunted by cruelty and neglect. RIP..
Do listen to a fantastic discussion on the brilliant Beyond Black by @BacklistedPod.
@SafiyaOutlines @arseholepaladin They are all highly readable but for a first one I would suggest Beyond Black. Which is absolutely nothing at all like Wolf Hall, but still.
@SwaledaleMutton I really liked her. I think the only book I didn’t enjoy was Beyond Black..
@trivet1806 Yes, Beyond Black is very good. It had a feel of Ghosts by Banville. Haven’t read the other one. May do now..
@NickMackieBook I agree. I mean I love Wolf Hall but Beyond Black was the first of her’s I read and was blown away.
@SP_Duckworth A Place of Greater Safety is also a superb book. As, in a very different way, is Beyond Black..
@piercepenniless @LRB Beyond Black is an exceptional book. Absolutely wonderful. What very very sad news..
I loved the centering of dark skin Black women in the Stormzy video 🤩. It’s beyond rare to see a video from a UK rapper where majority of the women are darker skinned. I think that’s so important for young Black girls to see 🙏🏾.
Excellent piece on one my favourite Mantel novels. The queen’s death made me think about how she wrote about Diana’s death in Beyond Black (and in her essay Royal Bodies), and I was beginning to look forward to her take on recent events..
I must reread Beyond Black sometime – a truly potent and haunting mix of horror and humor..
Beyond Black is still one of my favourite #books, discovered it as a bookseller and recommended it to a lot of people. Sad news..
Rest easy Hilary Mantel. A major genius and author of one of my favourite novels of all time “Beyond Black.”
Gutted to hear about Hilary Mantel. Beyond Black is still such a favourite of mine. A heroine.
Oh no! What a loss…..Wolf Hall trilogy obviously amazing but I have such a soft spot for Beyond Black..
