“Aldous Huxley is the greatest 20th century author in English.” —Chicago Tribune

Aldous Huxley is rightly thought to be a prophetic genius and probably the most important literary and philosophical voices of the 20th Century, and Brave New World is his masterpiece. From the Writer of The Doors of Perception, Island, and countless other works of fiction, non-fiction, philosophy, and poetry, comes this powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified readers for generations. Brave New World remains absolutely relevant to this day as both a cautionary dystopian tale in the vein of the George Orwell classic 1984, and as thought-provoking, thoroughly satisfying entertainment.

“Community, Identity, Stability” is the motto of Aldous Huxley’s utopian World State. Here everyone consumes daily grams of soma, to fight depression, babies are born in laboratories, and the preferred form of entertainment is a “Feelie,” a movie that stimulates the senses of sight, hearing, and touch. Though there’s no violence and everyone is provided for, Bernard Marx feels something is missing and senses his relationship with a young women has the potential to be a lot more than the confines of their existence allow. Huxley foreshadowed some of the practices and gadgets we take without any consideration today–let’s hope the sterility and absence of individuality he predicted don’t seem to be yet to come.
