  • "A novel of the hectic lifestyle of the 1920's, in which the characters experiment with libertine sex, political anarchism, and the death-of-God theory."
  • "Aldous Huxley's lifelong concern with the dichotomy between passion and reason finds its fullest expression both thematically and formally in his masterpiece Point Counter Point. By presenting a vision of life in which diverse aspects of experience are observed simultaneously, Huxley characterizes the symptoms of "the disease of modern man" in the manner of a composer - themes and characters are repeated, altered slightly, and played off one another in a tone that is at once critical and sympathetic. First published in 1928, Huxley's satiric view of intellectual life in the '20s is populated with characters based on such celebrities of the time as D.H. Lawrence, Katherine Mansfield, Sir Oswald Mosley, Nancy Cunard, and John Middleton Murray, as well as Huxley himself. A major work of the 20th century and a monument of literary modernism, this edition includes an introduction by acclaimed novelist Nicholas Mosley (author of Hopeful Monsters and the son of Sir Oswald Mosley). Along with Brave New World (written a few years later), Point Counter Point is Huxley's most concentrated attack on the scientific attitude and its effect on modern culture."

  • "A novel about the moral decadence of the 1920s features the sexual exploits of an aristocratic mother and daughter, a priapic painter and his troubled family, a fascist politician, a revolutionary, and many other characters representing contemporary man's ideals--religion and false mysticism, science, art, sex, politics, and disillusionment."

  • "Román předního anglického romanopisce, povídkáře a esejisty (1894-1963), podávající v satirickém pohledu monumentální obraz vyšší londýnské společnosti dvacátých let. Autor zde nastavuje zrcadlo nejen společenským ideám anázorům, ale přímo určitým osobnostem anglické politiky a kultury. Pod změněnými jmény zobrazuje sebe, okruh svých přátel i nepřátel a některé postavy anglického veřejného života. Román se takto stává mnohohlasou skladbou, v nížse podle autorovy teorie románu jednotlivé motivy samostatně rozvíjejí a prostupují jako hudební hlasy v kontrapunktu."
