About the Book

Written at the height of his powers immediately after "Brave New World," Aldous Huxley's highly acclaimed "Eyeless in Gaza" is his most personal novel. Huxley's bold, nontraditional narrative tells the loosely autobiographical story of Anthony Beavis, a cynical libertine Oxford graduate who comes of age in the vacuum left by World War I. Unfulfilled by his life, loves, and adventures, Anthony is persuaded by a charismatic friend to become a Marxist and take up arms with Mexican revolutionaries. But when their disastrous embrace of violence nearly kills them, Anthony is left shattered--and is forced to find an alternative to the moral disillusionment of the modern world.
