A Dance to the Music of Time: 1st Movement by Anthony PowellAnthony Powells universally acclaimed epic encompasses a four-volume panorama of twentieth century London. Hailed by Time as brilliant literary comedy as well as a brilliant sketch of the times, A Dance to the Music of Time opens just after World War I. Amid the fever of the 1920s and the first chill of the 1930s, Nick Jenkins and his friends confront sex, society, business, and art. In the second volume they move to London in a whirl of marriage and adulteries, fashions and frivolities, personal triumphs and failures. These books provide an unsurpassed picture, at once gay and melancholy, of social and artistic life in Britain between the wars (Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.). The third volume follows Nick into army life and evokes London during the blitz. In the climactic final volume, England has won the war and must now count the losses.
Four very different young men on the threshold of manhood dominate this opening volume of A Dance to the Music of Time. The narrator, Jenkins—a budding writer—shares a room with Templer, already a passionate womanizer, and Stringham, aristocratic and reckless. Widermerpool, as hopelessly awkward as he is intensely ambitious, lurks on the periphery of their world. Amid the fever of the 1920s and the first chill of the 1930s, these four gain their initiations into sex, society, business, and art. Considered a masterpiece of modern fiction, Powells epic creates a rich panorama of life in England between the wars.

If you've already seen Season 2, read our recap. It's hard to discuss Netflix's brain-teasing sci-fi series The OA without talking about the ending of its first season. While those eight episodes are packed with theoretical physics, cosmic visions, and unexplained mysteries , the gripping and polarizing conclusion centers around something truly unexpected: a contemporary interpretive dance piece performed in the face of violence. Referred to as the Five Movements, the routine has the power to raise the dead, facilitate interdimensional travel, and, depending on your interpretation of a key scene, prevent a school shooting. Dancing with the Stars , this is not.

Rupert Pennefather, a principal dancer at the Royal Ballet, lights a cigarette and holds it — self-consciously — in his right hand. He mutters something about ballet being 'a different kind of fitness' — anaerobic rather than aerobic — but, clearly, he isn't convinced. Pennefather is on the balcony of the Royal Ballet building, looking down onto the piazza of Covent Garden. He's in for morning class. It's like they say — miss class for one day, you notice; miss class for two days, your colleagues notice; miss class for three days, your audience notices.
