Aldous Huxley, “Those Barren Leaves”

-A deliciously satirical novel by Aldous Huxley

Stripping the pretensions of those who claim a spot among the cultural elite, it is the story of Mrs. Aldwinkle and her entourage, who are gathered in an Italian palace to relive the glories of the Renaissance. For all their supposed sophistication, they are nothing but sad and superficial individuals in the final analysis.


Deliciously satirical, Those Barren Leaves bites the hands of those who dare to posture or feign sophistication and is as comically fresh today as when it was first published (1925).


Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) was a British writer. His first novel, Crome Yellow (1921), established his literary reputation. He is best known for his 1932 novel Brave New World, a nightmarish vision of the future.
