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.

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.

Reviews

"One of the great novel-sequences in English Literature - a wonderful portrait of society, full of insight into the complexities of human behaviour, richly detailed and shrewdly funny."
""A Dance To The Music of Time" is an epic, elegant masterpiece, so full of lightness and comedy that you're unprepared for how it quietly wrecks your heart."
"Discovering Anthony Powell's "A Dance to the Music of Time" has been 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."
"Powell's novel sequence is at once a rich chronicle of 20th-century English social life and an intricately wrought work of art. It is also extremely funny, in its sly fashion."
"A masterful stylist and a wise, often hilarious observer of human nature and his times, Anthony Powell is an under-appreciated literary gem. The pleasures and dramas of the "Dance" continue to illuminate daily life."
"I re-read the "Dance" every five years or so and always find something new - the world has changed but the characters are evergreen. Everybody has a Widmerpool in their life."
"He has wit, style, and panache, in a world where those qualities are in permanently short supply" * The New York Review of Books *
"[A] comic masterpiece" * Irish Times *
"Comic, satisfying, thought-provoking, addictive" * The Telegraph *
