Aldous Huxley

First broadcast: 12 October 1958

In this excerpt from a longer programme, John Lehmann speaks to Aldous Huxley as the novelist and essayist shares his thoughts on the art of writing. Since World War II, Huxley has tended to concentrate on factual writing, yet he does not fear that he has lost faith in the novel. He does, however, speculate that recordings of spoken literature might one day take the place of written text.

Note: the original recording includes a brief dip in sound quality during this interview.
