Colin Wilson The Outsider

I have just learned of the passing of Colin Wilson, author of The Outsider on December 5th, the same day that Mandela passed away. His book had a profound influence on my life, enabling me to turn from feeling like a plain misfit into something much more noble called an Outsider. Instead of feeling worse than society Wilson helped us to feel better. We were exalted souls lost in a cultural wasteland. While very narcissistic, it did have its positive side, enabling me – and I suspect many others – to go out and do battle with the world. It was a lot better than falling into a slough of despondency. So Mr. Wilson, thank you.
