Aldous Huxley: "Time Must Have a Stop (The Collected Works of Aldous Huxley)"
Chatto and Windus | ISBN: 0701108193 | 1953 | PDF | 308 Pages | 15 MB
At the centre of this book is a marvellous attempt to describe what happens to the 'soul' after a human dies. Huxleys ideas for the novel are based on the Bardo Thodol (better known in the West as The Tibetan Book of The Dead). While you follow the dead person through various bardo states Huxley stays very much rooted in what we perceive as the everyday world, his characters dialogues entertaining us with customary Huxley wisdom and wit on everything from politics to art and literature. Another wonderful voyage with one of the pioneer synthesizers of East and West.
