With their lives drastically remodelled by the Second World War, the characters of The dance to the music of times series continue their colourful exploits. Nicholas Jenkins, the narrator, now in his thirties, is second-lieutenant in an infantry regiment and life in the army is examined at startlingly close range. Like its predecessors, this volume of The dance to the music of time is witty, sparkling, entertaining, but adds a new twist as it ironically, yet sympathetically, investigates a whole new world of wartime people and circumstances

Taking place during the period between the occupation of Paris by the Germans in June 1940, and their invasion of Russia a year later.

O, how the wheel becomes it! : a novel by Anthony Powell( Book )
18 editions published between 1983 and 2002 in English and held by 931 libraries worldwide
"Powell tells the story in O, How the Wheel Becomes It! of a British literary celebrity who is not an important writer, is no great personality, and certainly is no cause for celebration of the human species. G.F.H. Shadbold, a lifelong poseur and literary manque, lives, for the most part, in fear of discovery." "A friend, Cedric Winterwade, whom Shadbold evidently seduced in his college days, writes a novel almost as insignificant and badly written as Shadbold's own literary output. As time passes, however, and the "friend" is killed in the army, Winterwade's novel begins to be rediscovered while Shadbold's work remains ignored. The discovery that Winterwade has penned a journal sets the stage for a hilarious series of events, ending in Shadbold's justifiable downfall from grace as he discovers that his friend has revealed not only Shadbold's sexual indiscretions, but has described his own affair with a woman with whom Shadbold had been in love. Powell pokes fun at the writing community, academic life, and a whole generation of memoir-toting literati."--BOOK JACKET
