Perusing Volume One, I was struck by the sensitivity and the unerring perception in these unknown reviews, ultimately my most enjoyable reading of the year. -- Robert Craft, conductor and writer on music * Times Literary Supplement, (Books Of The Year, Dec.) * The editors...have done their job with commendable thoroughness. -- P. N. Furbank * Times Literary Supplement * An important and admirable publishing event. * Atlantic Monthly * Huxley was among the few writers who played with ideas so freely, so gaily, with such virtuosity, that the responsive reader was dazzled and excited. -- Isaiah Berlin A remarkable publishing event...these volumes return Huxley from our forgetfulness so as to enjoy his fine intelligence, prose and exemplary strengths. -- Jeffrey Hart * The Washington Times * His reading was immense, his taste was impeccable, and his ear acute...His place in English literature is unique and is certainly assured. -- T. S. Eliot There is much to enjoy in these volumes...they are important as a document of his times. * Economist * He writes with an easy assurance and a command of classical and modern cross-references. -- Christopher Hitchens * Los Angeles Times * To read all the essays in sequence is like being enrolled at the college of your dreams. * The New Yorker *
