9780099477778: Island

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY DAVID BRADSHAW

For over a hundred years the Pacific island of Pala has been the scene of a unique experiment in civilisation. Its inhabitants live in a society where western science has been brought together with eastern philosophy and humanism to create a paradise on earth. When cynical journalist, Will Farnaby, arrives to search for information about potential oil reserves on Pala, he quickly falls in love with the way of life on the island. Soon the need to complete his mission becomes an intolerable burden. In counterpoint to Brave New World and Ape and Essence, in Island Huxley gives us his vision of utopia.

Book Description Vintage. 1 Paperback(s), 2005. soft. Book Condition: New. Written as Aldous Huxley was ill with laryngeal cancer and published in 1962, this final novel from the author of Brave New World is an intriguing counterpoint to his most famous book, and "one of the truly great philosophical novels" (Times, London). Set on the Pacific island of Pala—for over a century, the scene of a unique experiment in civilization—it describes a place where Western science has been brought together with Eastern philosophy and humanism to create a paradise on earth. Cynical journalist Will Farnaby arrives with a mission to seek out potential oil reserves on Pala, but he unexpectedly falls in love with the islanders' way of life, and is loath to complete his assignment. 286.
