Crome Yellow, the first novel by acclaimed British author Aldous Huxley in 1921, is a satirical story of fads and fashion of the period. Taking place at a country house known as 'Crome', and is known for its gatherings of 'bright young things'. Owner and self-appointed historian of the house, Henry Wimbush, tells the guests fantastical stories of the house. The hero of the story, Denis Stone, works to capture the details of this adventure in poetry while also having his heart broken. Crome Yellow is a highly recommended read for those who enjoy witty, satirical novels and also for those who are fans of the works of Aldous Huxley.
