One of Huxley's masterpieces--one of the Modern Library's "100 Best Works of the Century."

Review:

Out of colossal disillusion Huxley has made Point Counter Point the most scintillating, the most bitter and the most serious of his novels. It is a notable piece of work.

The aim of this book is not idle amusement for the sophisticated, but a grasping of the intellectual Zeitgeist and a biting criticism of it.

From the Publisher:

Some reviews of Point Counter Point
'Huxley's style is at once dry and rich, intellectual and sensuous, scholarly and romantic. Point Counter Point is extremely funny with passages of rich and gorgeous farce.' Observer

'As a piece of satire, often brilliant, sometimes wise, Point Counter Point is a monstrous exposure of a society which confuses pleasure with happiness, sensation with sensibility, mood with opinion, opinion with conviction and self with God.' Guardian

Often described as a Vanity Fair for the Twenties, Point Counter Point contains wickedly accurate portraits of D.H.Lawrence, Katherine Mansfield, Ottoline Morrell and Huxley himself.
