2014 Anthony Powell Lecture

We are pleased to announce the

2014 Anthony Powell Lecture

In collaboration with The Wallace Collection

The Curious Case of Casanova’s Chinese Restaurant:
Constant Lambert and his Friendship with Anthony Powell

to be given by Stephen Lloyd

at The Wallace Collection, Manchester Square, London W1

on Friday 21 November 2014, 1830 hrs

Tickets £14 (which includes a glass of wine following the lecture)

Tickets may be purchased via the Society’s online shop or by emailing secretary@anthonypowell.org.

Why does an author, nearly half way through a sequence of related novels, suddenly disrupt the chronology and introduce a new character? Stephen Lloyd, the author of a new study of Constant Lambert (Constant Lambert: Beyond The Rio Grande, Boydell Press 2014), looks at Lambert’s life and suggests that, of all the characters in A Dance to the Music of Time, Hugh Moreland (Lambert’s fictional counterpart) held a very special significance for Anthony Powell and that Casanova’s Chinese Restaurant is rather more than just another novel in the sequence.

The Wallace’s restaurant will be open following the lecture for those wishing to dine. Table booking on 020 7563 9505.
