Part 4 of A Dance to the Music of Time

Synopsis (Credit: http://en.wikipedia.org)

A Dance to the Music of Time is a twelve-part cycle of novels by Anthony Powell, inspired by the painting of the same name by Nicolas Poussin. One of the longest works of fiction in literature, it was published between 1951 and 1975 to critical acclaim. The story is an often comic examination of movements and manners, power and passivity in English political, cultural and military life in the mid 20th century.

Winner: James Tait Black Memorial Novel 1957.
On the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die List.
Modern Library 100 Best Novels: No 43.

(Received from klaradyn, who kindly gave me copies of all 12 parts of this cycle of novels for BookCrossing purposes. Once read, I intend to select from these and the 9 copies I have a full set to donate to the 1001-library.)

This was the best of the 4 parts I have read so far. One can only admire the author's ability to describe a situation.

Donated to 1001-library to be included in the library of books on the combined 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die list.

This donation is in memory of Dunzy, who recommended this cycle of books and was always encouraging others to donate parts of the series to the 1001-library. I have copies of 9 parts of the cycle of 12, and klaradyn kindly gave me copies of all 12 parts for BookCrossing purposes. As I read them, I intend to select from the combined group a full set to donate to the 1001-library. If you are interested, let me know.

This book is rather fragile. Please handle with care.

At Lady Molly's : Part 4 of A Dance to the Music of Time

At Lady Molly's in the mid 1930s the main focus is on marriages, affairs, and divorces. In the background the 2nd World War is looming.

One of the highly entertaining passages of Part 4 is the conversation between Nick and General Conyers. Scattered in between is a bit of psychoanalytics, Prince Myshkin, and more music: If You Were the Only Girl in the World (and I Were the Only Boy)
