Aldous Huxley was a dizzyingly productive English author whose works cover nearly every genre, from fiction to philosophy to science. He had an outsized influence over twentieth century science fiction as well as the 1960s psychedelic movement. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize nine times but never won it. In The Genius and the Goddess, Huxley bridges his many interests, filling the pages with philosophical, scientific, and literary allusions, making it a difficult but rewarding read. It was his penultimate novel.
