About the Book

An extraordinary work of historical imagination – this is Hilary Mantel’s epic novel of the French Revolution.

One of the ten books – novels, memoirs and one very unusual biography – that make up the 4th Estate Matchbook Classics’ series, a stunningly redesigned collection of some of the best loved titles on our backlist.

1789: as Revolution sweeps through France, three obscure young men step into the harsh light of history.

Georges Jacques Danton has a prize fighter’s build, a sharp lawyer’s brain, a consuming ambition. Camille Desmoulins, charming and erratic, is a writer of genius with a taste for violence. Maximilien Robespierre is a slight, meek idealist who recoils from power, but who will lead his country into the darkness of the Terror.

For these men, the Revolution is a blood rite: the forces they have helped unleash will remake the world, but destroy their lives. From the two-time winner of the Man Booker Prize, A Place of Greater Safety announced Hilary Mantel as one of our greatest living novelists.
