British writer Hilary Mantel has done it again.

She’s won the  prestigious Booker literary prize for a second time.

Mantel wins this time for her Tudor saga “Bring Up the Bodies.”

She  took the $82,000  award in 2009 for “Wolf Hall,” and has become the first British author, and the first woman, to achieve a Booker double.

“Bring Up the Bodies” is also the first sequel to win the prize. It and “Wolf Hall” are parts of a planned trilogy about Thomas Cromwell, the powerful chief minister to King Henry VIII.
