Colin Wilson praises One Big Echo

Colin Wilson, author of cult 1950s classic The Outsider, has kindly contributed some words for the One Big Echo of a Much Nicer Place book jacket.

He says: ‘Martin Philp is a highly original writer of great talent. He has qualities that remind me of the best of Arnold Bennett, with a marvellous sympathy for ordinary people. His odd blend of humour and tragedy must be quite unique.’

Born in Leicester in 1931, Wilson first became well-known as a philosopher and novelist, and has also written about mysticism and true crime.

His autobiography Dreaming to Some Purpose is a real treasure, evocatively bringing to life the intellectual and bohemian circles of London and Paris in the 1950s.
