Antic Hay - Aldous HuxleyPenguin, 1948, Paperback ..
Condition: Good. An adequate reading copy only.
From the cover: “The place and period of the story is in the years immediately after the 1914-18 war, years of disillusion and excess in which old values were submerged in a tidal wave of cynicism. They live a crazy life, these artists adrift, intellectuals who have lost their bearings, and women who try to forget their griefs in the pursuit of a good time. Huxley has drawn these rakes and escapists with such precision and colour that some of his critics were misled into the assumption that he approved their attitude to life. But although Huxley is too good a novelist to deliver a sermon, there is no doubt of his satirical intention in portraying this period of disruption.”
