The Acceptance World Author:Anthony Powell "What an extraordinary world we live in," said Umfraville. "All one's friends marching about in the park." — It's the "Acceptance World" of London in the Great Depression of 1931-32, where a business is made out of accepting other people's debts, and where the participants in A Dance to the Music of Time reveal new facets of their personalities, ... more »as they either come to grips with, or dodge the limitations of their lives.
"The Acceptance World is written with the serpentine distinction characteristic of Mr. Powell's later style, and shows his infallible sense of social ironies. It also shows, very notably, a sense of place." - London Times Literary Supplement« less
