2012 album from Welsh singer/songwriter Anthony Reynolds (formerly of Jack and Jacques). Colin Henry Wilson (born 26 June 1931) is a prolific English writer who first came to prominence as a philosopher and novelist. Wilson has since written widely on true crime, mysticism and other topics. He prefers calling his philosophy new existentialism or phenomenological existentialism. His most famous book is probably 'The Outsider', published in 1956. It was then that Wilson became associated with the "Angry Young Men" of British literature, alongside Kingsley Amis and John Braine. He contributed to Declaration; an anthology of manifestos by writers associated with the movement, and wrote a popular paperback sampler, Protest: The Beat Generation and the Angry Young Men. He has had a particular impact upon musicians. David Bowie, Robert Fripp and Julian Cope have all acknowledged their interest in his work.
