Mortal Coils is a collection of 5 stories, which were written by Aldous Huxley in the 1920s. The first story, The Gioconda Smile, involves a short murder story. Permutations Among the Nightingales is a play concerning the amorous problems that various patrons of a certain establishment have. The Tillotson Banquet tells of an old artist who was thought to be dead. Green Tunnels is about the boredom of a young girl on holiday with her family. Nuns at Luncheon is a story being told of a nun falling in love. The story mocks the writer's process, a concept Huxley used in his Crome Yellow.

About the Author:

Aldous Huxley was born in 1894 in England. He began writing poetry and short stories in his early twenties, but it was his first novel, Crome Yellow (1921), which established his literary reputation. The author of Brave New World (published in 1932), Huxley came increasingly to believe that the key to solving the world's problems lay in changing the individual through mystical enlightenment. Huxley died in California in 1963.
