"Mr Huxley is eloquent in his declaration of an artist's faith in man, & it is his eloquence, bitter in attack, noble in defense, that, when one has closed the book, one remembers."--Saturday Review of Literature
"A Fantastic racy narrative, full of much excellent satire & literary horseplay."--Forum
"It is as sparkling, provocative, as brilliant, in the appropriate sense, as impressive ads the day it was published. This is in part because its prophetic voice has remained surprisingly contemporary, both in its particular forecasts & in its general tone of semiserious alarm. But it is much more because the book succeeds as a work of art...This is surely Huxley's best book."--Martin Green
The longer fiction of Aldous Huxley has been in the mainstream of the "Novel of Ideas" since the publication in England in 1921 (America '22) of Crome Yellow, his 1st novel. Huxley is one of the most skillful & most successful social satirists of the 20th century. His novels go far in defining the character of modern man, while his later work reflects an interest in mysticism & the effect of the consciousness-expanding drugs. Born in England in 1894, he took to writing when his eyesight temporarily failed. From 1934 until his death in 1963, he lived in California.
