Biographie de l'auteur :

Aldous Leonard Huxley was born on July 26, 1894, in Godalming, Surrey, England, the third son of writer Leonard Huxley, and grandson of zoologist, Thomas Henry Huxley. After being schooled in his father’s botanical laboratory, he attended Hillside School in Malvern, with his mother as a teacher. Following that, he attended Eton College. Huxley’s mother died in 1908, and he suffered an illness in 1911, which left him blind for nearly three years. He volunteered for the Army during World War I, but was rejected due to his eyesight. After that, he studied English literature at Balliol College, Oxford. Following graduation, he taught French at Eton, where George Orwell was one of his students. Although that only lasted a year, as he was a poor teacher, he impressed others with his use of words. During the 1920s, he worked at a chemical plant. Aldous wrote his first novel at the age of seventeen, though it remained unpublished, followed by his famous social satire, “Crome Yellow” in 1921.

Revue de presse :

"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)
