Point Counter Point

Aldoux Huxley


Aldous Huxley

(1894 - 1963)


Point Counter Point is a novel by Aldous Huxley, first published in 1928. It is Huxley's longest novel, and was notably more complex and serious than his earlier fiction.

In 1998, the Modern Library ranked Point Counter Point 44th on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. 

The novel's title is a reference to the musical technique of counterpoint, and the story is constructed after the fashion of a work of music. Instead of a single central plot, there are a number of interlinked storylines and recurring themes. Many of the characters are based on real people, most of whom Huxley knew personally.
