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

Review:

"'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)

" 'The Valley of Bones is sheer delight.It is immaculate in period and military detail; it praises duty, while at the same time making educated play of its absurdities; it recognises heroism, but is swift to prick pretension; it evokes a wry poetry from drabness and boredom; and it is exceedingly funny throughout'" ( Observer)

"'Incalculably brilliant'" ( TIME)

"'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:

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.
