it was amazing

Having finished the first three novels, which in the University of Chicago edition comprise the “first movement” of Powell’s magnum opus, I’m committed now to the follow-through. And yes, even the sum of these first three is greater than its constituent parts considered separately. What can I say that hasn’t been said of Powell elsewhere? Nothing, I’m sure. But 750 pages into the ‘Dance,’ I can’t bear the thought of an intermission. Powell is a perfect enchanter. I just picked up the second volume.
