Hilary Mantel Wins Her Second Booker

Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens (and the rest of the selection committee) awarded the 2012 Man Booker prize to Bring Up the Bodies, the sequel to the Booker-winning Wolf Hall.  Mantel is the first British writer to win two Bookers, but listen, this isn't over — there's still a third book to come. How do they say "threepeat" in the U.K.?
