About this title


A full-scale portrait of writer Angus Wilson by the distinguished novelist and author of The Gates of Ivory describes Wilson's role as a brilliant observer and commentator on the foibles and eccentricities of English life.


Said to hold the future of the English novel in his hands, Angus Wilson was at once fresh and revolutionary, recording the attitudes of 20th century England in savagely funny short stories and animated fiction. In Angus Wilson: A Biography, long-time friend and fellow-novelist Margaret Drabble reveals the colorful background that provided Wilson his unique perspective. The youngest of five siblings by 13 years, he spent his childhood eavesdropping on adult conversations and playing homosexual games with two of his older brothers. After attending Oxford, serving in the war, and working at the British Museum, Wilson suffered a breakdown. A psychotherapist encouraged him to write as a form of therapy and unknowingly launched his career.
