Those Barren LeavesBook - 2005
In a renovated Italian palace high above the blue sea, the Junoesque figure of Mrs Aldwinkle moves among her guests -- a brilliant Huxleyan cast of posturers. Those Barren Leaves bites the hands of those who dare to feign sophistication and is as comically fresh today as when it was first published.
