A dystopian novel that’s been out of print for almost a century has found new life.
Rose Macaulay’s What Not will be republished in March 2019, with previously censored passages restored, according to the Guardian.
It also includes a foreword that argues that the work influenced both Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World and George Orwell’s 1984, though no written evidence exists to confirm the claims.
