Brave New Worlds
Cheltenham Festival of Literature on Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. I was arguing that his 1932 novel is still highly relevant to current political and cultural debates, but I also was looking at its specific historical moment, at where it came from, at what made Huxley write it. It was an excellent Cheltenham audience with some very interesting an intelligent questions.
