Aldous Huxley’s death was overshadowed by Kennedy’s, but his artistic legacy lives on
Aldous Huxley was famous when he died on November 22 1963, but the coincidence of the assassination of President Kennedy that day meant that his death received less attention than it would otherwise have got.
Perversely, however, the coincidence may now be working in his favour.
But for that, I wonder if we would be writing articles noting the 50th anniversary of his death.
