How to introduce a book into an essay.?

QUESTION
How to introduce a book into an essay.?
Do I underline or italicize the title and the author? Do I quote? HELP!

(p.s it’s Brave New World by Aldous Huxley)

ANSWER
Introduce by the book or author. for example…

In the book _________, independence is widely discussed as an aspect of life that is merely imaginative and human-kind’s bold (but pitiful) attempt at controlling life.

OR. With a quote from the author.

In the book __________, AUTHOR states that, ” quote quote quote, giving an example of the point you are trying to make”, clearly supporting the idea that independence is an aspect of life that is merely imaginative and human-kind’s bold (but pitiful) attempt at controlling life.

(these aren’t my views, just examples of things people might write about. LOL)
