Suddenly, I realized I was in the exact same situation many of my favorite literary characters had found themselves in: Dostoevsky's Raskòlnikov, Rilke's Malte Laurids Brigge, the young man writer in Hamsun's Fame: alone in my room, completely alienated from society. It wasn't a condition I was proud of, and the idea of ​​not spending Christmas at home saddened me. But something inside me he had pushed me to choose isolation. I began to writing about it in my diary, trying to find the cause. Suddenly I realized I had the subject for a book on my hands. I turned over the diary and at the top of the page I wrote: “Notes for a book: "The outsider" ". In two pages I drew up a rather complete outline. That evening, I fell asleep with a sense of deep satisfaction; me felt like I had the best Christmas of my life.

Translated into over thirty languages ​​since it first appeared in England in 1956 (in Italy it was published by Lerici in the translation of Aldo Rosselli and Enzo Siciliano and since then, unlike what happened in the rest of the world, curiously forgotten), The Outsider, written in a reading room of the British Museum in a period in which the author slept in a sleeping bag in a park, it's one of the "underground" classics most important and loved of the entire twentieth century. Through the work and the life of artists, writers and philosophers such as Kafka, Camus, Hesse, Hemingway, Nietzsche, Barbusse, Van Gogh, Blake, Sartre, Gurdjieff and Dostoevsky, Colin Wilson explores the psyche and the role of those who “see too far too far ”and he comes to define a new model of knowledge and freedom.
