Those barren leaves.

Aldous Huxley is at his satirical best in this ironic portrayal of a group gathered in an Italian palace by Mrs. Aldwinkle, a woman yearning to relive the days of the Renaissance. Through his biting narrative, Huxley strips away the supposed sophistication of each guest'including a struggling poet turned editor; a disabled yet wealthy heiress who is endlessly pursued by an aging philosopher; and a man who embarks on an affair with a novelist, oblivious to the fact that she is recording every detail as material for her next book'until only their superficiality remains. HarperPerennialClassics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms. Look for more titles in the HarperPerennial Classics collection to build your digital library.

  • "A piercing portrayal of a group gathered in an Italian palace by the socially ambitious and self-professed lover of art, Mrs. Aldwinkle. Here, she yearns to capture the glories of the Italian Renaissance, but her guests ultimately fail to fulfill her naive expectations."
