Description - Hearing Secret Harmonies by Anthony Powell
A Dance to the Music of Time chronicles the lives of over three hundred characters, and is a unique evocation of life in twentieth-century England. It is unrivalled for its scope, its humour and the enormous pleasure it has given to generations. This concluding novel in the sequence follows Nicholas Jenkins and a host of familiar characters now with the insights, maturity and obsessions of middle age. From a cultural conference in Venice to the decline and fall of Kenneth Widmerpool, it is a triumphant conclusion to a masterpiece of English fiction.
