My friend Celia is a huge Huxley fan so some time ago I bought a copy of Crome Yellow but never really had an awful lot of time to read it Last week I dove in and absolutely adore it It s the Great Gatsby of the United Kingdom a novel entrenched in 1920s high society lifestyles of dinner parties and estates Huxley focuses most directly on Denis a struggling poet who cannot uite grasp the art of writing something up to par nor can he win the heart of the young lady he has fallen for What was most exceptional about this novel to me at least was the time Huxley dedicates to presenting each character and the care with which he does it Henry Wimbush is perhaps my favourite of the lot a man fascinated by tales of his ancestry tales as often filled with disappointment and melancholy as with luck and prosperity but above all with a subtle humour that almost ticklesI recommend this novel without hesitation and look forward to reading of Huxley s work
