A brand new BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Aldous Huxley's classic dystopian novel, widely considered one of the greatest novels of all time.
Aldous Huxley (1894 - 1963) was an English writer, novelist, philosopher and a prominent member of the Huxley family. He was best known for his novels including Brave New World, set in a dystopian London, and for non-fiction books, such as The Doors of Perception, which recalls experiences when taking a psychedelic drug, and a wide-ranging output of essays. He spent the later part of his life in the U.S., living in Los Angeles from 1937 until his death. Huxley was a humanist, pacifist, and satirist. By the end of his life, Huxley was widely acknowledged as one of the pre-eminent intellectuals of his time. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in seven different years.
