WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY MALCOLM BRADBURY

Denis Stone, a naive young poet, is invited to stay at Crome, a country house renowned for its gatherings of 'bright young things'.

First published in 1921, Crome Yellow was Aldous Huxley's much-acclaimed debut novel.

Review:

"Delightful. Crome Yellow is witty, worldly and poetic" ( The Times)

"I find it hard to keep my enthusiasm for Crome Yellow within decent bounds. It is at once irresistibly funny and shrewd in its criticisms of daily life" ( Daily Express)

"With a strong, delightful and admirable talent for caricature, Huxley is at his entertaining best in his grimaces at modern movements and at the ridiculous earnestness of the young" ( Observer)

"The tone of Huxley's story matches the title: it is a rich, full yellow which suggests the exhilarating glow of summer" ( Times Literary Supplement)

From the Publisher:

'Delightful. Crome Yellow is witty, wordly and poetic' The Times

Book Description Vintage. 1 Paperback(s), 2004. soft. Book Condition: New. One of the great social commentators of the 20th century, Aldous Huxley introduces us to a delightfully cynical, comic, and severe group of artists and intellectuals in this 1921 novel, "too ironic to be called satire and too scornful to be called irony" (F. Scott Fitzgerald). On vacation from school, Denis visits Crome, an English country house inhabited by such outlandish characters as Mr. Barbecue-Smith, who writes 1500 publishable words an hour by "getting in touch" with his "subconscious," and Henry Wimbush, who is obsessed with producing the definitive History of Crome. Denis's stay proves to be a disaster, however, amid his weak attempts to attract the girl of his dreams and the ridicule he endures regarding his plan to write a novel about love and art. 170.
