Aldous’ first collection of short fiction, consisting of six short stories and a play.
“Farcical History of Richard Greenow”
“Happily Ever After”
“Eupompus Gave Splendour to Art by Numbers”
“The Death of Lully”
I think i must have been in my early 20’s when i read this, so about 30 years ago. Wow! Good book, great philosphical discussion within, as usual with Aldous’ stories.
So i’ve shoved it onto ‘The Pile’ to be read once more as i work through all of Aldous’ writings.
It’s certainly been a while since i read this. I used to own so many of Aldous’ books, now i have to collect them all over again on Kindle before having a really good reading binge.
One day i’ll get around to reading this again, it’s been nearly 30 years and it just popped up in Kindle Daily Deals for 99p so i couldn’t turn it down.
I’m hoping to digitally rebuild my Aldous Huxley collection that i used to have years ago in real books – maybe when i’ve got a load i’ll have a good Huxley binge, but until then they can sit and gather some digital dust.
