Into the household of physicist Henry Maartens enters Rivers, a scientist who stands in awe of both Maartens and his beautiful wife, Katy. But when the genius ails, and Katy, seeking temporary solace, takes the scientist to bed, Rivers is left to reflect on the uncertain grace of an earth-goddess.

About the Author:

Aldous Huxley was born in 1894 near Godalming, Surrey. He began writing poetry and short stories in his early twenties, but it was his first novel, ‘Crome Yellow’ (1921), which established his literary reputation. This was swiftly followed by ‘Antic Hay (1923), ‘Those Barren Leaves’ (1925) and ‘Point Counter Point ‘(1928) – bright, brilliant satires in which Huxley wittily passed judgement on the shortcomings of contemporary society.
