APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
What if we were always comfortable, never alone and untouched by the aging process? That’s the futuristic premise of Aldous Huxley’s brilliant 1932 novel, which imagines an assembly-line civilisation of flying taxis and test-tube babies where family is a vulgarity, promiscuity is a virtue and self-medication is a form of exercise. Brave New World is a wry parable about love and social order that gracefully balances insight and amusement. It’s a very much still-relevant cautionary tale about our cultural addiction to frivolousness and distraction, a modern classic that’s even better than we remembered.
