Jeanette Loving Hilary Mantel's writing, I am a complete fan, I'd say the stories are quite different than her historical fiction. Hilary as a "voice" is much stronger in reveal of her own personality in the stories. Good/bad? The writing is so superb, never redundant, always in the minute but not using any trite phrasing. It flows. Superb in both forms. NEVER wordy and circular either, does not kill the emotion with too many words.
Lizp Yes. Yes. Yes! The writing is magnificent. The opening story about stalking is powerful. The Margsret Thatcher story is delightful.
Rosemary Terribly disappointing. These are vignettes, not stories. Glad I g oink t I f2f from the library and didn't spend money! And I am a huge fan of her Wolf Hall series.
