Product Description:

Anthony Beavis is a man inclined to recoil from life. His past is haunted by the death of his best friend Brian and by his entanglement with the manipulative Mary Amberley. Realising that his determined detachment from the world has been motivated not by intellectual honesty but by moral cowardice, Anthony attempts to find a new way to live.

Review:

"A crystal clear and a deeply moving book... Unerringly, Huxley explores the layers of memory, affection and the decline of sexual attraction, asking the unanswerable question of what you do with love after it dies.... his deepest, funniest, most marvellous of novels" ( Observer)

"Sardonically humorous, urbane and exquisite in style" ( Scotsman)

"The play of ideas and theories, moral, psychological and sociological, is profuse and scintillating" ( Times Literary Supplement)

" Eyeless in Gaza embodies Huxley's conclusions about life. Amusing, moving and brilliant, there is no doubting the sincerity and the beauty of this book" ( Listener)

"Brilliant intellectual fireworks" ( The Times)
