Odd but very interesting

This Fresh Air interview (rebroadcast from 2012) of Hilary Mantel, author of Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies, is a really odd, but rewarding juxtaposition of Gross' interest in the details of all things violent and sexual, and Mantel's extraordinarily detailed expertise in the violent and sexual court of King Henry VIII.

Saw the first episode of the mini-series. Really stupendous.

If there were no words at all, Wolf Hall would be a triumph of naturalist lighting and mood.
