Why We Love This

Temporary Kings by Anthony Powell. London: Heinemann, 1973. First printing. Excellent copy of the first printing of the 11th book in the Dance of Time series, with a small dent on first end page. As the saga continues, violence and disaster stalk the protagonists, despite the charm of a Venetian setting. Powell has created a mighty, alternative portrait of English society in this cycle of novels. Jacket is lovely design by Broom-Lynne. Slight corner wear.
