The ninth novel in Anthony Powell's brilliant twelve-novel sequence, A Dance to the Music of Time
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. THE MILITARY PHILOSOPHERS follows Nicholas Jenkins and a host of familiar and newer characters through the strains, absurdities and preoccupations of England at war.
“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.”
