First published in 1921, Crome Yellow was Aldous Huxley's much-acclaimed debut novel.

Recensioner i media

"Delightful. Crome Yellow is witty, worldly and poetic" * The Times * "I find it hard to keep my enthusiasm for Crome Yellow within decent bounds. It is at once irresistibly funny and shrewd in its criticisms of daily life" * Daily Express * "With a strong, delightful and admirable talent for caricature, Huxley is at his entertaining best in his grimaces at modern movements and at the ridiculous earnestness of the young" * Observer * "The tone of Huxley's story matches the title: it is a rich, full yellow which suggests the exhilarating glow of summer" * Times Literary Supplement *

Övrig information

Aldous Huxley came to literary fame in 1921 with his first novel, Crome Yellow. With the novels Antic Hay, Those Barren Leaves and Point Counter Point, Huxley quickly established a reputation for bright, brilliant satires that ruthlessly passed judgement on the shortcomings of contemporary society. In later life, exploration of the inner life through mysticism and hallucinogenic drugs dominated Huxley's writing, including his first-person account of experiencing mescaline in The Doors of Perception. Aldous Huxley died in 1963.
