9780330298735: The Autobiography of Henry VIII

This is the story of England's most famous, and notorious, king. The facts of Henry VIII's life and reign were more astonishing, poignant and outlandish than the plot twists of most fiction. Henry's character was complex: he was a charismatic, ardent -- and brash -- young lover who married six times; a scholar with a deep love of poetry and music; an energetic hunter who loved the outdoors; a monarch whose lack of a male heir haunted him incessantly; and a ruthless leader who would stop at nothing to achieve his desires. His monumental decision to split from Rome and the Catholic Church was one that would forever shape the religious and political landscape of Britain. Combining magnificent storytelling with an extraordinary grasp of the pleasures and perils of power, Margaret George delivers a vivid portrait of Henry VIII and Tudor England and the powerhouse of players on its stage: Thomas Cromwell, Cardinal Wolsey, Thomas More and Anne Boleyn. It is also a narrative told from an original perspective: Margaret George writes from the King's point of view, injecting irreverent comments from Will Somers -- Henry's jester and confidant.

From the Publisher:

Praise for The Autobiography of Henry VIII:

"A remarkable achievement.... Magnificently researched and admirably written." --Mary Stewart

"Her novel is a...banquet feast for most readers...astonishing. This is a stylistic tour de force in which the author captures the essence of sixteenth-century English speech and prose without becoming stilted in either.... There's rousing drama, robust atmosphere and consistently solid characterization; and finally Margaret George's triumph is anchored in the urgent rhythm her writing attains." --Fort Worth Star Telegram

"It doth brim with lust, violence, cruelty and lively conversation.... Margaret George has found a new and fresh way to tell a story." --Detroit Free Press

From the Inside Flap:

An extraordinary novel that brings into vivid focus the larger-than-life King Henry VIII, monarch of prodigious appetites for wine, women, and song. This is a readable, entertaining, tour de force that captures the essence of the Sixteenth Century, in all its drama and atmosphere. A can't-miss for readers who delight in wonderful historical fiction perfectly rendered.
"It doth brim with lust, violence, cruelty and lively conversation...Margaret George has found a new and fresh way to tell the story."
