An extreme departure from his classic Brave New World, Aldous Huxley’s last novel introduces the Pacific island of Pala, home to a flourishing ideal society for the last 120 years. But the bliss of the island must eventually attract the envy of the outside world—not least because of its vast oil reserves. A conspiracy to take over Pala is undertaken, and when an agent for the conspirators arrives on the island, his experiences with the people of Pala revolutionize his values, and above all else, give him hope.
