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.
