Description - Dance To The Music Of Time Volume 1 by Anthony Powell
'One of English fiction's few twentieth-century masterpieces' John Lanchester, LONDON REVIEW OF BOOKS
The first three volumes of Anthony Powell's remarkable A DANCE TO THE MUSIC OF TIME sequence- A QUESTION OF UPBRINGING; A BUYER'S MARKET; THE ACCEPTANCE WORLD
'One of the greatest pleasures of my reading life. The cool elegance of the prose, the deliciously dry humour, the confident choreography of his characters make for an incomparable treat.' - Michael Palin
Anthony Powell's brilliant twelve-novel sequence 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.
These first three novels in the sequence follow Nicholas Jenkins, Kenneth Widmerpool and others, as they negotiate the intellectual, cultural and social hurdles which stand between them and the 'Acceptance World'.
