Overview


This edition includes a modern introduction and a list of suggested further reading.
 
Since its initial publication in 1921, Aldous Huxley's Crome Yellow has delighted readers with its ironic wit aimed at a diverse carnival of pretentious British upper-class characters. Huxley's satiric novel exposes the social hypocrisy of a rigidly class-conscious British establishment that was trying to forget World War I had ever happened. His characters hide their insecurities behind masks of pseudo-intellectuality. Even the book's title, Crome Yellow, is a clever metaphor inferring the stark differences between appearance and reality.

Meet the Author


London-born Aldous Leonard Huxley (1894-1963) was a poet, novelist, dramatist, essayist, and humanist philosopher. He attended Eton and Oxford and briefly taught at Eton before devoting himself solely to writing. Crome Yellow's critical success earned him advances for future novels, and his fifth novel was Brave New World (1932), which is one of the most read books in literary history.
