Giving Up the Ghost: A Memoir

Hilary Mantel
ISBN
9780312423629
In postwar rural England, Hilary Mantel grew up convinced that the most improbable of accomplishments, including "chivalry, horsemanship, and swordplay," were within her grasp. Once married, however, she acquired a persistent pain that led to destructive drugs and patronizing psychiatry, ending in an ineffective but irrevocable surgery. There would be no children; in herself she found instead one novel, and then another.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Hilary MantelPublisher: Picador USAPublished: 09/01/2004ISBN: 9780312423629Pages: 223Weight: 0.65lbsSize: 8.40h x 5.50w x 0.70d
