Abstract:

"David King Dunaway has crafted an oral history of Huxley's central place in intellectual history that restores Huxley's reputation during his American years." "After a brilliant early career with novels like Antic Hay and Chrome Yellow, Huxley's reputation suffered with his exile to California, which he undertook partly for the sake of his failing sight, partly out of disappointment with the European peace movement and partly in search of a new spiritual direction." "This wide-ranging study includes interviews with Huxley's family, Isherwood and other key figures in British and American letters, with such sources as his FBI file and his newly discovered film scripts for Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice. In addition, never-before published interviews trace Huxley's pioneering steps into the world of meditation and psychoactive drugs. In a chronological exploration of Huxley's life, the book portrays the intimate side to Huxley's shift from a satiric novelist to a prophet of science, sociology and mysticism."--BOOK JACKET.
