Description
The correspondence of Aldous Huxley reveals one of the 20th century's liveliest minds; of the ten thousand letters he wrote, only a fraction appeared in the collection published in 1969. James Sexton's thoughtful selection, coming almost 40 years later, consists largely of letters that have never before been published, including many that were once considered too sensitive for publication.

"These newly published letters of Aldous Huxley are like the discovery of buried treasure. It is as if some leading figure from the Age of Enlightenment had survived into the present. Expressing himself so naturally and often wittily in these letters, he sets a lasting example of intelligence and humanity."óDavid Pryce Jones

"A fascinating and revelatory glimpse into the mental engine room of one of the 20th century's most commanding men of letters. Huxley knew everybody, and everybody knew him: these letters provide a vital record of an extraordinary moment in Europe's history as well as a portrait of an extraordinary man. A volume as entertaining as it is illuminating."óRoger Kimball
