Aldous Huxley (1894–1963) was one of the most important novelists of the twentieth century. Robert S. Baker is professor of literature at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and author of The Dark Historic Page and Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. James Sexton teaches English at Camosun College in British Columbia.
Perusing Volume One, I was struck by the sensitivity and the unerring perception in these unknown reviews, ultimately my most enjoyable reading of the year.

An important and admirable publishing event.

The editors have done their job with commendable thoroughness.
— P.N. Furbank; Times Literary Supplement
Huxley's political writing is often deliberately perverse.
— Leo Carey; The New Yorker
Much to enjoy in these volumes...they are important as a document and a window on to the stage in the evolution of his mind.
He writes with an easy assurance and a command of classical and modern cross-references.
— Christopher Hitchens; Los Angeles Times
As war approaches, Huxley ponders political ideologies, science, and mystical experience
