By presenting a vision of life in which diverse aspects of experience are observed simultaneously, Huxley characterizes the symptoms of the disease of the modern man in the manner of a composer--themes and characters are repeated, altered slightly, and played off one another in a tone that is at once critical and sympathetic.First published in 1928, Huxleys satiric view of intellectual life in the 20s is populated with characters based on such celebrities as D.H.

Lawrence, Katherine Mansfield, Sir Oswald Mosley, Nancy Cunard, and John Middleton Murray, as well as Huxley himself. A major work of the 20th century and a monument of literary modernism, this edition includes an introduction by acclaimed novelist Nicholas Mosely (author of Hopeful Monsters and the son of Sir Oswald Mosely).Along with Brave New World (written a few years later), Point Counter Point is Huxleys most concentrated attack on the scientific attitude and its effect on modern culture.
