Crome Yellow

$ 10.00

Huxley, Aldous. Dover Publications, Inc. 2004

"A social satire of the British literati in the years following WWI, Crome Yellow focuses on a comical cast of outlandish characters who have gathered in the small town of Crome on the county estate of Henry Wimbush.  In addition to the party's host and his attractive niece, Anne, there's Mr. Scogan, who's planning a "Rational State," much like the the one Huxley describes in his 1932 classic, Brave New World; Denis Stone, a sensitive poet haplessly in love with Anne; and Mr. Barbecue-Smith, who writes 1500 published words an hour -- an admirable feat under most circumstances."
