In a renovated castle set above the blue of the sea, the Junoesque figure of Mrs Aldwinkle moves among her guests. These include a poet who earns his living editing "The Rabbit Fancier's Gazette", a sophisticated if somewhat jaded Don Juan, and a pair of charmingly innocent lovers.

Brilliantly done; Those Barren Leaves has humour, daring, some excellent fooling, remarkable erudition and plenty of Huxley's salacious irony.
It is brilliant and daring . . . humorous, witty, clever, cultured.
Huxley has an utterly ruthless habit of building up an elaborate and sometimes almost romantic structure and then blowing it down with something too ironic to be called satire and too scornful to be called irony. --F. Scott Fitzgerald
The many-toned wit of the book, the beauty and shrewdness of its descriptions, the learning, the thought, the richness of character, the intellectual and artistic honesty of it . . . show that Mr. Huxley . . . will be a great novelist.
'Extremely clever, with the brilliance we have come to associate with this author' New York Times
