Aldous Huxley is at his satirical best in this ironic portrayal of a group gathered in an Italian palace by Mrs. Aldwinkle, a woman yearning to relive the days of the Renaissance. Through his biting narrative, Huxley strips away the supposed sophistication of each guest—including a struggling poet turned editor; a disabled yet wealthy heiress who is endlessly pursued by an aging philosopher; and a man who embarks on an affair with a novelist, oblivious to the fact that she is recording every detail as material for her next book—until only their superficiality remains.
