Inhaltsangabe: Recorded Live - One Cassette
Huxley reads from what some critics consider his best novel. This chapter describes the passage between life and death of "Oncle Eustace," a generous and cynical art lover who does not realize he is dead. Partly inspired by The Tibetan Book of the Dead, the excerpt has a preternatural quality enhanced by the author's reading.
Note: The inherent difficulities of live recordings and the age of some of the recordings can cause variations in the sound quality.
ALDOUS HUXLEY (1894-1963) British-born novelist, poet, essayist, philosopher and mystic, Huxley was fascinated by the wilder margins of psychology, medicine, the occult, drugs and religion. He was a man of exceptional vision and foresight, and his breadth of learning was astounding. He wrote over 50 books, including such classics as "The Doors of Perception", "Island", and "Brave New World".
"Huxley was a scientist and artist in one, standing for all we most need in a fragmented world where each of us carries a distorting splinter out of some great, shattered, universal mirror. He made it his mission to restore these fragments" - Yehudi Menuhin
From the Back Cover: Sebastian Barnack, a handsome English schoolboy, goes to Italy for the summer, and there his real education begins. His teachers are two quite different men: Bruno Rontini, the saintly bookseller, who teaches him about things spiritual; and Uncle Eustace, who introduces him to life's profane pleasures. The novel that Aldous Huxley himself thought was his most successful at "fusing idea with story", Time Must Have A Stop is part of Huxley's lifelong attempt to explore the dilemmas of twentieth-century man and to create characters who, though ill-equipped to solve the dilemmas, all go stumbling on in their painfully serious comedies (in this novel we have the dead atheist who returns in a seance to reveal what he has learned after death but is stuck with a second-rate medium who garbles his messages).
