The eleventh novel in Anthony Powell's brilliant twelve-novel sequence, A Dance to the Music of Time

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

Review:

"'Intricate and enthralling - As always, the novel pivots on a concept of the profound comedy of all human posture. But the humour is indisputably darker, pervaded by a sense that soon careers will be concluded, aspirations wither away. Rich, complex, original showing consummate narrative skill'" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"'I think it is now becoming clear that A Dance to the Music of Time is going to become the greatest modern novel since Ulysses'" (Clive James)

"'I would rather read Mr Powell than any English novelist now writing'" (Kingsley Amis)

"'Mr Powell's imagination is inexhaustible'" ( Spectator)

"'I find Powell the sort of writer who exerts such a strong pull that turning anyone else's books, after his, calls for an effort of will - One of the most individual tones of voice in contemporary novel-writing and one of the most artful'" (Norman Shrapnel Guardian)

About the Author:

Anthony Powell was born in 1905. After working in publishing and as a scriptwriter, he began to write for the Daily Telegraph in the mid-1930s. He served in the army during World War II and subsequently became the fiction reviewer on the TLS. Next came five years as literary editor of Punch. He was appointed a Companion of Honour in 1988. In addition to the twelve-novel sequence, A Dance to the Music of Time, Anthony Powell is the author of seven other novels, and four volumes of memoirs, To Keep the Ball Rolling.
