Published today from Paupers’ Press: ‘Colin Wilson’s ‘Lulu’: an unfinished novel’. In 1983 Colin Wilson wrote “For twenty-five years now I have been writing a novel called Lulu, and I must have started it a hundred times.”Wilson scholar Vaughan Rapatahana writes, in his Introduction: “From his first conceiving the idea in 1956 until about 1980-81, as evidenced not only from the part-manuscripts that we have been able to source, but more particularly from his many comments on the book over these years, Wilson was intermittently preoccupied with this novel.”
The project was never completed despite being commissioned for serialisation by BBC2 in 1976. This book contains the 176 pages of what has survived plus some of Wilson’s notes and journal entries on the novel, providing a tantalising prologue to what might have been.

sounds worth looking into
Absolutely, I have a copy ordered. Colin spoke a lot about this work off and on although sadly he never completed it.
