Grandson of the scientific philosopher Thomas Henry Huxley, great-nephew of Matthew Arnold, Aldous Huxley was born at the very heart of England's humanist elite in its golden days - a complicated, brilliant, charming boy who, despite almost total loss of sight at 16, became a cultural hero of the decades after World War I. From the iconoclastic wit of novels such as "Crome Yellow" and "Point Counter Point" in the 1920s, his literary career changed direction with "Brave New World" in 1932. This is his biography.
