Colin Wilson's 1956 work The Outsider contributed largely to the popularization of existentialism in Britain and helped earn him the Angry Young Man label. Here he takes us on a journey back to this era, revealing fascinating and sometimes disturbing stories from the greats, including John Osborne, Kingsley Amis, Kenneth Tynan, and John Braineto name but a few. Historically, the Angry Young Man movement gave birth to the satire movement of the 1960sBeyond the Fringe, That Was the Week that Was, and Private Eye. Their irreverence aroused enthusiasm, and a new anti-establishment mood developed from Look Back in Anger and The Outsider. The story of that period makes a marvelously lively tale which, most importantly, was recorded by someone who was actually there.
