'One of English fiction's few twentieth-century masterpieces' -John Lanchester, London Review of Books
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.
Volume 2 contains the second three novels in the sequence: At Lady Molly's; Casanova's Chinese Restaurant; The Kindly Ones
“There is no other novelist whose work gives so much or such consistent pleasure.”
“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.”
“I would rather read Mr Powell than any English novelist now writing”
