First published in 1936 - and hailed as his best work - Eyeless in Gaza is Aldous Huxley's loosely autobiographical novel of one man’s search for an alternative to the moral disillusionment of the modern world. 

Anthony Beavis, a cynical libertine Oxford graduate, comes of age in the vacuum left by World War I. His life, loves, and foreign adventures leave him unfulfilled, until he meets a charismatic doctor who inspires Anthony to become a Marxist and join the Mexican revolution - a disastrous embrace of violence that leaves the doctor with one leg. Shattered by the experience, Anthony forges a new, quasi-Buddhist philosophy that embraces pacifism. 

Eyeless in Gaza remains one of Huxley’s most enduring novels, a testament to the challenges and rewards of bold, vigorous thinking.
