Aldous Huxley's last years were surrounded by controversy. Admirers of Chrome Yellow, Antic Hay, and Point Counter Point could not reconcile the author of those brilliant, hard novels with the man who became deeply involved in Vedanta, Zen, and other mystic religions and who experimented with psychedelic drugs. Huxley, as Laura shows us in this intimate portrait, remained serenely aloof from criticism, viewing society with sorrow and sometimes wry amusement, but never with anger. This Timeless Moment is the story of Huxley's later years (Laura Archera met him in 1948 and they were married in 1956), when he devoted his time to lecturing, writing, and, in partnership with Laura, to finding ways of "opening the mind." Illustrated with photos.
