Novels to Some Purpose by Nicholas Tredell (CW Studies # 25) 

 Novels to Some Purpose:

The Fiction of Colin Wilson


Nicolas Tredell


[Colin Wilson Studies # 25]

Colin Wilson (1931-2013), best known for studies such as The Outsider (1956), Introduction to the New Existentialism (1966), The Occult (1971), considered his fiction to be an integral part of his oeuvre, often deliberately linking a novel to a specific work of non-fiction. A stimulating blend of ideas and entertainment, students of Colin Wilson the philosopher, and of existentialism in general, are well-advised to seek out and acquaint themselves with this fiction.

Nicolas Tredell’s definitive study not only provides plot summaries and authoritative assessments of all Wilson’s published novels and short fiction, but also includes sections on unpublished, proposed and incomplete work. It updates, and considerably expands, the previous editions published in 1982 and 2007.
