A DANCE TO THE MUSIC OF TIME : Volume 5 CASANOVA'S CHINESE RESTAURANT
This volume starts on a completely different tack than previous volumes in this sequence. Our narrator Nicholas Jenkins is now married and is involved in the arts scene as he is a writer for the British motion picture industry.
We have some of the earlier characters introduced early in the novel starting to die off and many new ones being introduced.
There is the suicide of a main character and the usual seemingly endless swapping of women amongst them.
The world politically is coming to grips with the fact that there is to be another war and this is apparent in the behaviour of many of the characters.
