Originally published in 1932, this outstanding work of literature is more crucial and relevant today than ever before. Cloning, feel-good drugs, antiaging programs, and total social control through politics, programming, and media—has Aldous Huxley accurately predicted our future? With a storyteller’s genius, he weaves these ethical controversies in a compelling narrative that dawns in the year 632 AF (After Ford, the deity). When Lenina and Bernard visit a savage reservation, we experience how Utopia can destroy humanity.

A powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified readers for generations, Brave New World is both a warning to be heeded and thought-provoking yet satisfying entertainment.

Aldous Leonard Huxley (1894–1963) was an English poet, novelist, dramatist, essayist, and humanist philosopher. He attended Eton and Oxford and briefly taught at Eton before devoting himself solely to writing. His fifth novel, Brave New World, is one of the most read books in literary history.

Michael York is a successful screen and stage actor. Among his screen credits are Romeo and Juliet, Cabaret, The Three Musketeers, Logan’s Run, and Austin Powers. Stage appearances include Britain’s National Theatre and Broadway. His television work has garnered Emmy nominations and his audio recordings Grammy nominations, as well as five AudioFile Earphones Awards. He has been awarded Britain’s OBE, France’s Arts et Lettres, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Reviews

“The writer-philosopher’s mind-bending saga imagines a futuristic, apparently pain-free society created through genetically-modified babies, psychological manipulation, drugs, and a social hierarchy based on intelligence. Huxley’s most famous novel reminds us about the dangers of complacency.”

“British actor Michael York’s refined and dramatic reading captures both the tone and the spirit of Huxley’s masterpiece…An excellent performance of a classic and prescient twentieth-century novel.”

“A classic science fiction work that continues to be a significant warning to our society today.”

"Brave New World is one of the most influential genre classics of all time. Its provocative vision of a future gone awry remains as powerful and as timeless as ever.”

“As sparkling, as provocative, as brilliant...as the day it was published.”

“It is a frightening experience, indeed, to discover how much of his satirical prediction of a distant future became reality in so short a time.”

“Easily one of the most significant novels of the twentieth century and still perhaps the definitive dystopian read.”
