ALDOUS HUXLEY 


MOR TH, 








READ FOR | IBRIYOX BY KIRSTEN WEVER 





Aldous Huxley is best known as a philosopher and novelist — notably 
as the author of Brave New World. He also wrote poetry, short 
stories and critical essays. Most of his work is somewhat dark and 
mildly sardonic, partly because he came of age just after World War 
I, when all of Europe was in a state of cultural, political and social 
confusion. His novel, Crome Yellow, is a prime example. 


Mortal Coils includes four short stories and a play, including one of 
the author’s most famous short works: "The Gioconda Smile.” -
