Reader's note

This excellent title is a part of the Chatto and Windus collected works of Aldous Huxley set. All with bright blue and red dust jackets, if you're missing this one, then it is an extremely lucky find. The novel itself is set in Italy where, in a renovated castle about the Tyrrhenian sea, Mrs. Aldwinkle entertains an assortment of guests. These include a poet, who to earn a living edits 'The Rabbit Fancier's Gazette', a Mr. Calamy who is a sophisticated Don Juan, and a pair of innocent and charming lovers. In this bizarre setting, and with an abundance of vivacious and astringent conversation, they play out the comedy of their incongruity with one another and with their background. A far cry from 'Brave New World', 'Those Barren Leaves' is perfect for any reader looking for something a little lighter.
