Overview

Crome Yellow is the first novel by British author Aldous Huxley and published in 1921. In the book, Huxley satirises the fads and fashions of the time. It is the story of a house party at "Crome", a lightly veiled reference to Garsington Manor, home of Lady Ottoline Morrell, a house where authors such as Huxley and T. S. Eliot used to gather and write. The reader hears the history of the house from Henry Wimbush, its owner and self-appointed historian; apocalypse is prophesied, virginity is lost, and inspirational aphorisms are gained in a trance. The hero, Denis Stone, tries to capture it all in poetry and is disappointed in love.

Aldous Leonard Huxley (26 July 1894 � 22 November 1963) was an English writer and one of the most prominent members of the famous Huxley family. Best known for his novels including Brave New World and a wide-ranging output of essays, Huxley also edited the magazine Oxford Poetry, and published short stories, poetry, travel writing, film stories and scripts. Huxley spent the later part of his life in the United States, living in Los Angeles from 1937 until his death. By the end of his life Huxley was widely acknowledged as one of the pre-eminent intellectuals of his time and respected as an important researcher into visual communication and sight-related theories as well.
