Summary

Denis Stone, a self-conscious young poet, is invited to the English town home of Crome, renowned for its gatherings of intellectuals. Hosted by Henry and Priscilla Wimbush, the house party has much to offer the naive Denis. The guests include the self-contained Anne, whom Denis adores; the handsome artist Gombauld, his rival for Anne's affections; and the cynical Mr. Scogan. All have their stories and ideas to unfold but, as Denis comes to realize, ideas cannot compensate for reality.

This is the first novel penned by Aldous Huxley; it launched his storied writing career, which included Brave New World, The Doors of Perception, and Mortal Coils.

NOT Science Fiction!!!!!!!

I bought it because it kept being suggested to me when I was searching for classic science fiction because "Brave New World" is already in my library. Not bad for what it is & would be perfect adapted as a Broadway play; ThSt being said it isn't SciFi & not what I was looking for. I wouldn't have finished it if I hadn't already psyed for it.
