Aldous Leonard Huxley (1894-1963) was an English writer and one of the most prominent members of the famous Huxley family. He spent the latter part of his life in the United States, living in Los Angeles from 1937 until his death in 1963. Best known for his novels and wide-ranging output of essays, he also published short stories, poetry, travel writing, and film stories and scripts. He was a humanist but was also interested towards the end of his life in spiritual subjects such as parapsychology and philosophical mysticism. By the end of his life Huxley was considered, in some academic circles, a leader of modern thought and an intellectual of the highest rank. He was also well known for advocating and taking LSD, including on his death bed.

From the Inside Flap:

One of the greatest prose writers and social commentators of the 20th century, Aldous Huxley here introduces us to a delightfully cynical, comic and severe group of artists and intellectuals engaged in the most free-thinking and modern kind of talk imaginable.

About the Author:

Aldous Leonard Huxley was born on July 26, 1894, in Godalming, Surrey, England, the third son of writer Leonard Huxley, and grandson of zoologist, Thomas Henry Huxley. After being schooled in his father’s botanical laboratory, he attended Hillside School in Malvern, with his mother as a teacher. Following that, he attended Eton College. Huxley’s mother died in 1908, and he suffered an illness in 1911, which left him blind for nearly three years. He volunteered for the Army during World War I, but was rejected due to his eyesight. After that, he studied English literature at Balliol College, Oxford. Following graduation, he taught French at Eton, where George Orwell was one of his students. Although that only lasted a year, as he was a poor teacher, he impressed others with his use of words. During the 1920s, he worked at a chemical plant. Aldous wrote his first novel at the age of seventeen, though it remained unpublished, followed by his famous social satire, “Crome Yellow” in 1921.
