Some brief overview of this book

In postwar rural England, Hilary Mantel is a fierce, self-possessed child, schooling herself in chivalry, horsemanship, and swordplay and convinced that she will become a boy at age four. Catholic school comes as a rude distraction from her rich inner life. At home, where a father and a stepfather come and go at strange, overlapping intervals, the keeping of secrets becomes a way of life. Her late teens bring her to law school in London and then to Sheffield with a lover who becomes her husband. She soon acquires a persistent pain, which over the next decade will subject her to destructive drugs, patronizing psychiatry, and, finally, at age twenty-seven, to an ineffective and irrevocable surgery. There will be no children; instead she has a ghost of possibility, a paper baby, a person who slipped between the lines.

Hormone treatments alter her body beyond recognition. And in the middle of it all she begins one novel, and then another, drawing on deep gifts of memory and imagination.
