Seventeen-year-old Sebastian Barnack is a poet and son to a widowed father who doesn't approve of his lifestyle. In response, Sebastian turns to his hedonistic and rich uncle Eustace, travelling to Florence to join him on holiday, hoping for a taste of the decadent lifestyle he desires. What follows, however, is a spiritual journey of self-discovery that involves death, deceit, intrigue and loss.

Published in 1944, Time Must Have a Stop explores Aldous Huxley's philosophical ideas on mysticism and was described by the author as his most successful attempt at "fusing story with idea."
