Boleyn Scorecard

The Boleyn family is in danger of overexposure. The Other Boleyn Girl (reviewed in the 2/22 issue of New York magazine) featuring the sisters Anne and Mary, opens in movie theaters on Friday.

Then, Anne takes center stage in the second season of The Tudors which begins on Showtime on March 30th.

But, wait, there yet another Boleyn girl — Jane, wife of Anne and Mary’s brother George. She is featured in a new biography, Jane Boleyn: The True Story of the Infamous Lady Rochford. On Sunday, Liane Hansen interviewed the author, Julia Fox on NPR’s “Weekend Edition.” LJ‘s 12/15 review said the book “would make an exceptional reading group selection.”
