A Dance to the Music of Time by Anthony Powell

This twelve novel sequence recounts the life and experiences of Nick Jenkins. He begins his narration before the First World War and ends in reflective old age. There are few masters of prose with Powell's command of irony and elegance of language. These are tender, amusing, pervasive novels; they remain in the memory.
Anthony Powell was born in London.
