Books by Anthony Powell (26)

  • Anthony Powell's first, highly acclaimed novel maps the decline and fall of a characteristically seedy section of London society, and confirms the author's reputation as one of the great satirists of the twentieth century.

  • Anthony Powell's celebrated early novel turns to English rural society to caricature a socially aspiring artist and his disastrous ambition to marry well.

  • The hugely successful early novel which established Anthony Powell as a leading voice in English comic fiction, What's Become of Waring is the teasing and wittily contrived story about a famous but elsuive travel author who seems to have some very good reasons for concealing his life behind a screen of mystery.

  • A post as special correspondent for a new and fragile Baltic state gives the young but melancholy Lushington an opportunity to turn his back on an unhappy love affair. While gathering information at the many parties he attends, he hopes to report on unrest, an assassination, perhaps even a revolution. Yet it is Lushington who once more finds himself out of his depth...

  • Celebrated but crippled photographer, Saul Henchman sets out to cruise the British Isles in search of peace and fulfilment. Beautiful dancer, Barberina Rookwood gives up her career to be with him. Throughout, they are observed by novelist Valentine Beals, who becomes obsessed with the parallels between Henchman's story and the Arthurian Legend of the Fisher King, whose mystic destiny involves love, ambition, desire and sacrifice.

  • During the eighties, while working on a novel which had become 'stuck', Anthony Powell, one of the greatest of twentieth-century Enlgish novelists, began writing a journal. Gossipy, delightful, sometimes barbed, these journals give a fascinating insight into the writer's life: the people he met, the places her visited and the parties he went to. The acute intelligence and wit which has made A Dance to the Music of Time one of the best loved novels in English is ever-present in these papers, where the reader will encounter Osbert Lancaster, Kingsley Amis, Philip Larkin, Lord Longford - all viewed with affection and a startling frankness.
