The English author's dystopian Brave New World has proven eerily prescient.
Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) was an English novelist, poet, essayist, and dramatist best known for his dystopian 1932 book Brave New World, set in a prescient, futuristic London and long a staple of middle-school curricula. By the end of his life, Huxley was widely acknowledged as one of the preeminent intellectuals of his era and was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in seven separate years.
