A Dance to the Music of Time

Three novels: A Question of Upbringing; A Buyer's Market; The Acceptance World

Anthony Powell's famous `Time' sequence of books deftly choreographs the lives of more than three hundred characters over a period of seventy years and chronicles the whole century. Now, Mandarin are specially reissuing the four omnibus volumes to tie in to the forthcoming Channel Four production, four 2 hour episodes starring Sir John Gielgud, Alan Bennett, James Purefoy, Claire Skinner and Edward FOx. Volumes 1, 2 and 3: 'A Question of Upbringing', 'A Buyer's Market' and 'Acceptance World'.

In addition to the twelve-novel sequence, A Dance to the Music of Time, Anthony Powell was the author of seven other novels, and four volumes of memoirs, To Keep the Ball Rolling.
