Format: Hardcover
This is a compilation of reviews of Huxley's writing throughout his career. What's most telling is to see how critics reacted to the stages in Huxley's personal development, and how he expressed his beliefs in his writing. There was also this fascinating story about several young writers, as they were becoming known:

In 1919 writer and poet Richard Aldington was asked to write an article to identify young writers Aldington thought would become known to the public. After writing the article, he received a letter from the editor saying, “For God’s sake, can’t you think of somebody who had been heard of or is ever likely to be heard of.”

Aldington protested and the piece was sent to essayist and critic Logan Pearsall Smith to arbitrate the merits of the list, who decided that the writers would never be heard of, and the article was rejected.

The list of writers was: James Joyce, T.S, Eliot, D.H. Lawrence, Aldous Huxley, Marcel Proust, and poet, novelist, and memoirist H.D. [the only one I had never heard of but became famous in her own right, including a renewed interest in her life and work in the 1970s and 1980s].

I especially love how the critics reacted to Huxley's interest in spirituality - basically feeling like he had gone insane.
