The Essential Colin Wilson



One of the great 20th Century philosophers and authors, Colin Wilson reads excerpts from his most famous and thought provoking works together with a brilliant spontaneous commentary delivered with the incisiveness of written text. His first book, The Outsider, published in 1956 was greeted with instant international acclaim—a critical study of men who feel themselves too intelligent or sensitive for the ‘rat race’ of modern civilisation. In The Essential Colin Wilson, he presents what he considers to be the essence of his works and this compact disc is a further attempt at compression — to select the essence of the essence.
