Description
The dilettantes who frequent Lady Tantamount's society parties are determined to push forward the moral frontiers of the age. Marjorie has left her family to live with Walter; Walter is in love with the luscious but cold-hearted Lucy who devours every man in sight; the repulsive Spandrell deflowers young girls for the sake of entertainment and all the while everyone is engaged in dazzling and witty conversation. Huxley's fourth novel is both a portrait of the brilliant and frivolous intellectual and artistic circles of the 1920s, and an examination of the eternal question, "what is the happy, healthy life?" It contains portraits of D.H. Lawrence, Katherine Mansfield, Ottoline Morrell and Huxley himself.
