An excerpt of Hilary Mantel‘s upcoming short story collection The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher will run first in the NYT Book Review on September 28th. Publishers Marketplace reports that the collection’s title story will also be featured in UK outlet The Telegraph on September 20.

NYTBR editor Pamela Paul told PM the Review “would love to do more first serials and excerpts, albeit selectively.” Mantel won the 2012 Man Booker Prize and the 2012 Costa Award (a first) for her period novel Bring Up the Bodies set in Henry VIII’s England. Paul says the short is “a shift from her two most recent historical novels.”
