About the Bookshed Bookstore of Benson Vermont
On this site are interesting books on a variety of subjects. Our stock is well described and "considered", that is we don't buy large lots and throw them up on the web. The inventory is particularly strong in cook books, philosophy and religion, history and literature. Of note is our collection of books by and about the English author Anthony Powell-the most complete collection to be found anywhere
Powell was the last surviving writer of the Brideshead Generation. His masterpiece A Dance to the Music of Time is an often comic twelve-novel cycle of life in England among the artistic, literary, military and (minor) aristocracy through the twentieth century. It has been hailed by many critics and his fellow novelists as one of the most important works of the century. You are invited to learn more at The Anthony Powell Society.
