Students everywhere are familiar with his science novels, Eyeless in Gaza, Chrome Yellow, and Island Book.
Huxley had a tough early life. When he was 14, his mother died of cancer, his brother committed suicide, and he began having problems with his eyesight. Because of an infection, his corneas became inflamed and thus couldn’t see well. But after all of these, he authored more than 50 books and a large selection of poetry, stories, articles, philosophical treatises, screenplays, and quotes.
