OTHER PUBLICATIONS
Stone Shade Violet Powell; A Stone in the Shade
Violet Powell (1913-2002) completed fifteen chapters of this fourth and final volume of autobiography which, like her husband Anthony Powell's memoirs, ran to four volumes. Though her publications tended to follow his at a respectful distance, A Stone in the Shade confirms her as an accomplished writer and humorist in her own right. Born into the Anglo-Irish aristocracy, she chronicles the Powell and Pakenham families, her forays into London's higher Bohemia, various junketings in Somerset and County Westmeath and the amenities, both cultural and social, of Swan's Hellenic Cruises. Osbert Lancaster inspired her to take up her long-neglected box of paints and thereafter she never travelled without a sketchbook-diary, filling its pages with talented illustration and amusing commentary. It also provides some unedited glimpses of the great novelist on holiday.
Stone Trough Books, June 2013, hardback, ISBN 978-0954454289, 220x160mm, 180 pages, colour illustrations.

*** REDUCED *** LAST FEW COPIES ***
letters John Saumarez Smith and Jonathan Kooperstein
The Acceptance of Absurdity : Anthony Powell - Robert Vanderbilt Letters 1952-1963
HARDBACK
.
In February 1952 the proprietor of the leading Anglophile bookshop in New York, Robert Vanderbilt Jr, wrote to Anthony Powell suggesting that he should reprint one, possibly two, of Powell's pre-war novels. This led to an animated exchange of letters about the production and sale of Two Novels: Venusberg and Agents and Patients and a longstanding friendship. When Powell became Literary Editor of Punch the correspondence took on a new life as both men helped each other find books to review or sell. The result is a literary kaleidoscope with London and New York equally represented. It also reminds a later generation of the lasting rewards of letter writing.

A selection of student essays from John's teaching of Dance to High School Seniors at Phillips Academy, USA in 2002-3 and again in 2007-8.
Dance Class offers an extraordinary collection of student essays about Anthony Powell's great comic novel. The young authors not only discuss issues of character, plot, and theme, but they also investigate historical background, chart personal relevance, parody characters and situations, even write a treatment for a drama.
For those who love A Dance to the Music of Time, this book will reveal fresh new ways of looking at the series. And for those who are just discovering it, Dance Class will prove a useful and highly entertaining guide.
Dance Class is also available from iUniverse; this may be cheaper for non-UK customers.
