It was an idyllic weekend at Crome. As the country-house guests - including a talented painter, a spiritual journalist, three girls and a young would-be poet - while away their time in brilliant talk, we are presented with a vivid portrait of two generations at leisure. From the science fantasies of Mr Scogan [anticipating the Huxley of Brave New World] to Henry Wimbush’s engaging accounts of his eccentric ancestors, this is social satire of the most relaxed sort. Its blend of intelligent humour, sadness, fantasy and farce established Huxley’s reputation as a leading spokesman and critic of the brittle world of the 1920s.
