This Timeless Moment book. As a huge Huxley fan, I had been looking forward to reading this book for some time. Based on Island and other of Aldous's works, I really hoped to read about lifestyle, relationships, dating, daily life, habits that he believed in, that type of mundane thing that makes up the majority of someone's life. Instead, this book was very much about Aldous's influence on Laura's life and about Laura's lifestyle.

After reading Huxley's books for years, we finally get a glimpse into his later years through the eyes of his second wife, Laura Huxley. It is apparent throughout the book the extent to which Laura loved and admired Aldous. Nothing wrong with that. We learn the truth about his alleged "blindness", his view of psychedelics and how he handled death. Although through my readings it was apparent that Huxley was a brilliant man of letters, the biography brought to light the kindness of the man. He was, according to Ms. Huxley, willing to avail himself and his knowledge to anyone who.

Huxley's fascination with the spiritual world remained with him throughout his life and never wavered through his final illness in 1963. THIS TIMELESS MOMENT takes the reader into the lively mind of one of the most profound thinkers of any generation. Long before "turn on, tune in, drop out" became the credo of the American counterculture, Aldous Huxley was using mescaline and LSD in controlled, carefully documented experiments.

We learn the truth about his alleged "blindness", his view of psychedelics and how he handled death. Although through my readings it was apparent that Huxley was a brilliant man of letters, the biography brought to light the kindness of the man. He was, according to Ms. Huxley, willing to avail himself and his knowledge to anyone who sought it (except perhaps reporters from whom he understandably sought sanctuary).
Even though I am sure it was unintended, we also come away with some notions about Ms. Huxley. Her devotion to Aldous, open-mindedness, and self-effacing manners shine through.
I liked the book, but somehow felt the picture was incomplete. Certainly Huxley must have had an interior struggle between his religous beliefs and his intellect. Such a struggle is not discussed in this book. Perhaps Ms. Huxley was unaware of such a struggle or perhaps Aldous had somehow transcended it by the time he met Laura.

I am a huge Aldous Huxley fan, so having ANYTHING to do with his "development" and life are always intriguing.
Of course, this is his wife's doing; not his, and I am unearthing a lot of blank spots in his life and is well worth the read.

Contemporary account of the final days of Aldous Huxley by the person who was closest to him for that whole time. Important historical document describing one of the most quoted writers of the 20th Century, his life and death. Must read for any student of modern literature.

Amazing, fill in so much about aldous. she must have loved him dearly considering how devoted and supportive she was.

Aldous Huxley's death told by his second wife with life - affirming, natural, warm and human sensibilities and in the spirit. - so important to him and her - which I'd describe as something like psychologically and philosophically explorative.

Shipped fast, great condition. This is a must read for any fan of Mr. Huxley! I also recommend reading his final book "island" following "This Timeless Moment"

I had read the Sybille Bedford biography and was disappointed in that and thought that this coming from his wife and she being a psychiatrist would be more insightful but it really wasn't(but it was a lot shorter).For some reason I thought a biography should be more than a compendium of the physical travel history but neither of these is.
Having met Aldous myself, as a student, in his later years, it was great to have this description of his friendly smile, and especially, their marriage at a 'Drive-In', Yuma AZ!!
