Contest - Win Hilary Mantel's Bring Up the Bodies and Wolf Hall and a $100 Threadless Gift Certificate

Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall is one of my favorite works of historical fiction. This month, its sequel, Bring Up the Bodies, was released to glowing reviews.

To enter this week's contest, name the person you would most like to read a fictionalized history about. My choice: the photographer Man Ray.

One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:

Hilary Mantel's novel Bring Up the Bodies
Hilary Mantel's novel Wolf Hall

A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like A Voyage of Discovery, A Book Lover, November Was a Good Month, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, music-related t-shirts like The Official Guide to Music, Boom Box, Sound of the Dark, or anything else that catches your fancy.

If you have already have the books or they don't interest you, I am happy to substitute a second $100 Threadless gift certificate for the novels.

The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (May 18th).
