“The Mirror & the Light” by Hilary Mantel brings a triumphant close the Wolf Hall trilogy, tracing the final years of Thomas Cromwell, the boy from nowhere who climbs to the heights of power under the rule of Henry VIII.

Portrayed by Mantel with pathos and terrific energy, Cromwell is as complex as he is unforgettable: a politician and a fixer, a husband and a father, a man who both defied and defined his age.
