Meet the Author

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. He spent the later part of his life in the United
States, living in Los Angeles from 1937 until his death in 1963.
Best known for his novels including Brave New World and
wide-ranging output of essays, he also published short stories,
poetry, travel writing, and film stories and scripts. Aldous Huxley
was a humanist and pacifist, and he was latterly interested in
spiritual subjects such as parapsychology and philosophical
mysticism. He is also well known for advocating and taking
psychedelics. By the end of his life Huxley was considered, in some
academic circles, a leader of modern thought and an intellectual of
the highest rank.
