    Story
    (287)

    Anthony Powell's universally acclaimed epic encompasses a four-volume panorama of twentieth century London. Hailed by Time as "brilliant literary comedy as well as a brilliant sketch of the times," A Dance to the Music of Time opens just after World War I. Amid the fever of the 1920s and the first chill of the 1930s, Nick Jenkins and his friends confront sex, society, business, and art.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Anthony Powell? Why or why not?

    YES, but this is difficult to listen to as there are so many characters over such a long period of time.

  • The Chaperone

    >The Chaperone is a captivating novel about the woman who chaperoned an irreverent Louise Brooks to New York City in 1922, and the summer that would change them both. Only a few years before becoming a famous actress and an icon for her generation, a 15-year-old Louise Brooks leaves Wichita to make it big in New York. Much to her annoyance, she is accompanied by a thirty-six-year-old chaperone who is neither mother nor friend. Cora Carlisle is a complicated but traditional woman with her own reasons for making the trip.

    Amanda says: "Perfection."
    "I loved this story and Ms. Mcgovern."

    Would you listen to The Chaperone again? Why?

    I thought the story was wonderful and it was beautifully performed.


    What about Elizabeth McGovern’s performance did you like?

    Her voice, of course, and her performance.
