The long wait is over! Hilary Mantel’s third and final volume of Wolf Hall series “The Mirror and The Light” is out in the UK today and will be released in the US on March 10.

In fact, when it was my turn to ask, Collins said we were out of time. I don’t know what kind of a sad look I gave to her but she said: “OK, one more…” Continue reading “Throwback Thursday to Damian Lewis in American Buffalo!”
