Crome Yellow is the first novel by British author Aldous Huxley and published in 1921. In the book, Huxley satirises the fads and fashions of the time. It is the story of a house party at "Crome", a lightly veiled reference to Garsington Manor, home of Lady Ottoline Morrell, a house where authors such as Huxley and T. S. Eliot used to gather and write. The reader hears the history of the house from Henry Wimbush, its owner and self-appointed historian; apocalypse is prophesied, virginity is lost, and inspirational aphorisms are gained in a trance. The hero, Denis Stone, tries to capture it all in poetry and is disappointed in love. Crome Yellow is in the tradition of the English country house novel, as practiced most notably by Thomas Love Peacock, in which a diverse group of characters descend upon an estate to leech off the host. They spend most of their time eating, drinking, and holding forth on their personal intellectual conceits.
