Hilary Spurling has said of herself: "I write biographies because I am fascinated by people – by their infinite resourcefulness, by their mystery and power, by the strange patterns their lives make – and because they give me better plots than any novel I could invent." To her masterly studies of English novelists and the French painter Henri Matisse she has now added Anthony Powell: Dancing to the Music of Time which is being published in October. In her talk she will reflect on her pursuit of an often elusive subject, placing Powell's life firmly in the context of his celebrated twelve-volume sequence A Dance to the Music of Time.
Non-members welcome. Further details from Keith Marshall.
