Description

A sumptuous gift edition to mark the 90th anniversary of first publication. With an Introduction by Yuval Noah Harari.

‘A masterpiece of speculation… As vibrant, fresh, and somehow shocking as it was when I first read it’ Margaret Atwood, author of The Handmaid’s Tale

Welcome to New London. Everybody is happy here. Our perfect society achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family and history itself. Now everyone belongs.

You can be happy too. All you need to do is take your Soma pills.

Discover the brave new world of Aldous Huxley’s classic novel, written in 1932, which prophesied a society which expects maximum pleasure and accepts complete surveillance – no matter what the cost.

‘A grave warning… Provoking, stimulating, shocking and dazzling’ Observer


**One of the BBC’s 100 Novels That Shaped Our World**
