9780061724909: The Genius and the Goddess (P.S.)

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.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 202 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Thirty years ago, ecstasy and torment took hold of John Rivers, shocking him out of half-baked imbecility into something more nearly resembling the human form. He had an affair with the wife of his mentor, Henry Maartens--a pathbreaking physicist, winner of the Nobel Prize, and a figure of blinding brilliance--bringing the couple to ruin. Now, on Christmas Eve while a small grandson sleeps upstairs, John Rivers is moved to set the record straight about the great man and the radiant, elemental creature he married, who viewed the renowned genius through undazzled eyes.
