Huxley: A Beginner's Guide by Kieron O'Hara

Author of Brave New World and The Doors of Perception, and inventor of the term ‘psychedelic’, Aldous Huxley was a global trend-setter ahead of his time. In this new biography Kieron O’Hara explores the life of this great visionary, charting his transformation from society satirist to Californian guru-mystic through an insightful analysis of his life’s work. Combining thoughtful biography, expansive reading notes, and an exploration of Huxley’s continuing legacy, Huxley: A Beginner’s Guide is the definitive introduction to one of the twentieth century’s most influential thinkers. Dr Kieron O’Hara is a Senior Researcher at Southampton University, England.
