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.” -
