Summary

Mortal Coils is a collection of 5 pieces, which were written by Aldous Huxley in the 1920s. The first one, The Giaconda Smile, is a short murder story. Permutations Among the Nightingales is a play concerning amorous problems had by patrons of a certain establishment. The Tillotson Banquet tells of an old artist who was thought to be dead. Green Tunnels is about the boredom of a young girl on holiday with her family. Nuns at Luncheon is a story being told of a nun falling in love. The story mocks the writer’s process, a concept Huxley used in his Crome Yellow. Each story is read by the talented narrator, Simon Vance.

Society Comedies that I found rather boring

Unlike A New World or Jacobs Hands, this had little of the human insight I love in Aldous' work. Apart from the last story which is actually tale ally great. The performance is perfectly done, couldn't ask for a better job there, this just wasn't really my cup of tea
