    Frances Shore is a cartographer by trade, a maker of maps, but when her husband's work takes her to Saudi Arabia she finds herself unable to map the Kingdom's areas of internal darkness. The regime is corrupt and harsh, and the streets are not a woman's territory; so she becomes confined in her flat. As her days empty of certainty and purpose, her life becomes a blank – waiting to be filled by violence and disaster.

    From the two-time Man Booker award-winning author, comes a collection of short stories. Ranging from a ghost story to a vampire story to a near-memoir to mini-sagas of family and social fracture. Each story brilliantly unsettles the listener with Mantel’s classic wicked humor and unsparing eye, in an unmistakably Mantel way.

At the same time she is plagued by spirits from her own past, who infiltrate her body and home, becoming stronger and nastier the more she resists....

    England 1520: Henry VIII. ist noch immer ohne männlichen Thronfolger, was für ihn eine persönliche wie politische Katastrophe ist.

    1791. La Révolution a fait voler en éclats la société française. Tout a changé : le régime, les lois, le système éducatif... Mais la situation politique du pays reste profondément instable. À Paris et en province, les luttes de pouvoir, les conspirations, l'intransigeance des nouveaux élus, la menace d'une guerre qui anéantirait une France déjà exsangue instaurent un climat délétère. Après avoir œuvré pour la Révolution et occupé le devant de la scène, Danton et Camille Desmoulins voient Robespierre se radicaliser.

    This sharp, funny collection of stories begins in the 1950s in an insular northern village 'scoured by bitter winds and rough gossip tongues.' The title story sees our narrator ironing out her northern vowels with the help of an ex-actress with one lung and a Manchester accent. In Third Floor Rising' she watches, dazzled, as her mother carves out a stylish new identity. With a deceptively light touch, Mantel locates the transforming moments of a haunted childhood.

    Drei junge Männer in den Wirren der Französischen Revolution. Da ist Georges Danton: ehrgeizig, energisch, hoch verschuldet. Maximilien Robespierre: gewissenhaft und furchtsam. Und schließlich Camille Desmoulins: ein Rhetorikgenie, aber auch wankelmütig und unzuverlässig. Während die drei in den berauschenden Sog der Macht geraten, erkennen sie, dass ihre Ideale auch eine dunkle Seite haben. Das monumentale elfstündige WDR-Hörspiel - bis in die kleinste Rolle erstklassig und prominent besetzt - erzählt packend und hochemotional von einem der erschütterndsten Ereignisse der Weltgeschichte.
