Item Number: 116231

First edition of Huxley’s classic satiric novel. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket with light rubbing and wear. Uncommon in this condition.

Point Counter Point's title is a reference to the flow of arguments in a debate, and a series of these exchanges tell the story. Instead of a single central plot, there are a number of interlinked story lines and recurring themes (as in musical "counterpoint"). As a roman à clef, many of the characters are based on real people, most of whom Huxley knew personally, such as D. H. Lawrence, Katherine Mansfield, Sir Oswald Mosley, Nancy Cunard, and John Middleton Murry, and Huxley is depicted as the novel's novelist, Philip Quarles. It was named by Modern Library as one of the 100 greatest novels of the twentieth century.
