About meAldous Leonard Huxley (1894-1963) was a British-born fictionist, philosopher, and essayist. Born under the Godalming, Surrey sun on July 26th, 1894, Huxley slammed into the world with a genetic jackpot. His father, a gifted schoolteacher and writer, was the son of biologist Thomas Henry Huxley, also known as "Darwin's Bulldog" for his avid (and sometimes choleric) support of Darwin's theory of evolution. Huxley had three brothers, one of whom sadly committed suicide owing to clinical depression. His other two brothers became accomplished biologists, most particularly, Sir Julian Sorrell Huxley, an evolutionist.
About my libraryAldous Huxley's library was mostly decimated during a house fire in 1963. In 2009, UCLA acquired his literary archive. This shall be my starting point in the Somacoma: Aldous Huxley's Reading Room project.
