Description

From one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, Aldous Huxley, comes his great novella, set in Rome, about a writer's affair with a mysterious young fan - once again available in the US, for the first time in more than 70 years, and featuring two other acclaimed short works, plus an original introduction from noted critic Gary Giddins.

In After the Fireworks, three of Aldous Huxley's lost classic pieces of short fiction are collected for the first time. In the title novella, Rome is the stunning backdrop where internationally famous novelist Miles Fanning is setting out on a walk down Via Condotti toward the Spanish Steps when he encounters the mysterious Pamela Tarn - a beautiful young American admirer of his work who shares a name, as well as conspicuous personality traits, with a character from his most celebrated book. Though there is a considerable age difference between them and they come from different worlds, both are soon irresistibly drawn into a dangerous affair that has unforeseen consequences.

First published one year before he wrote his classic Brave New World and now available again for the first time in 75 years, After the Fireworks is Aldous Huxley at the height of his powers. Featuring an original introduction by National Book Critics Circle Award-winner Gary Giddins, this new collection also includes Uncle Spencer (1924), the story of an aging World War I veteran's quest for the lost love he met in a prison during the war, and Two or Three Graces (1926), the tale of a passionate and destructive writer's abusive relationship with an impressionable bourgeois housewife.
