Crome Yellow (01 Edition)

by

Crome Yellow (01 Edition) Cover

 

Staff Pick

Written when he was twenty-seven, Huxley's first novel is a cursory exploration into many of the thematic elements that would later mark his literary ouevre (existentialism, mysticism, modernism, etc). Set in early twentieth century England, on the manorial Crome estate, this scathing satire of wealth, aristocracy, and effete intellectualism is both a vivid character study and a commentary on excessive morality. Never at a loss for wit, Huxley crafts the remarkable tale of three wordsmiths brought together for a sultry summer sojourn of lazy afternoon antics and amorous longings. Comedy, romance, and scads of memorable personalities make this a potable, albeit often overlooked, title from one of England's greatest writers.
