Description

  • First published in 1932, Aldous Huxley’s depiction of a totalitarian dystopia ranked fifth on the Modern Library’s list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. It is the prototype for many of the motifs and ideas that recur in our imagined and speculated futures, in fiction and in film. The questions it raises around industrial manufacturing, the purposes of science and the integrity of the individual, remain unnervingly prescient.
