Cem mil euros. Isto em 2006 que todos os anos é fixado o montante em legislação.

Hilary Mantel ganhou o Man Booker Prize 2009 com o romance Wolf Hall.

«O romance que conta a história de Thomas Cromwell, conselheiro de Henrique VIII, irá ser publicado em Portugal pela editora Civilização.» Isabel Coutinho, Público.

«So there it is: for the first time in a decade, the bookies' favourite has romped away with the laurels. Hilary Mantel's revisionist history of the life of Tudor arch-villain Thomas Cromwell, Wolf Hall, has won the 2009 Man Booker prize, and I for one couldn't be happier about it. On a remarkably strong shortlist, her novel stood out for me – as the most imaginative, the most ambitious, the most complete. She has taken a well-known – even well-worn – story and injected it with thrumming vitality: reproducing the sights, sounds and pungent smells of London in the 16th century; recomplicating characters that have been worn down, over hundreds of years, to attenuated, if gaudy, ciphers.» Sarah Crown, Guardian.

«It is a famous portrait by Hans Holbein the Younger: Thomas Cromwell in his finery, about 1534, looking formidable and clutching a piece of paper while he sits at a desk that holds the implements he used to write Henry VIII’s correspondence and draft Henry VIII’s laws. In “Wolf Hall,” Hilary Mantel’s arch, elegant, richly detailed biographical novel centered on Cromwell, she has used Holbein’s delivery of the portrait as the basis for a dagger-sharp moment of truth.» Janet Maslin, The New York Times.
