APRIL: What are you reading?

16 years ago

I'm still trying to recover from The Terror.

I finished Aldous Huxley's Crome Yellow. When I was in high school I had to read Brave New World and Brave New World Revisited. I loathed them so much that I vowed never to read another book by Huxley. But surprise, surprise! I got a kick out of his first effort published in 1921. It's a parody about the stereotypical characters inhabiting most literature, and he put them all together in that most cliche of British settings: the country-house party. It probably took me forty-something years to build up enough experience to appreciate Huxley's theme -- it would have been wasted on my younger self.
