Just purchased a classic that I can’t wait to start. It is Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Written in 1931, Huxley imagined a dystopian future that is both frightening and frighteningly real today.
Incidentally, he taught French to George Orwell at Eton. Perhaps, Orwell took inspiration from his teacher for 1984.
I got a lovely hardback edition from Everyman’s Library. I am already certain that it will be one for the bookcase!
