9780140086621: Inside Outsider: Life and Times of Colin MacInnes

In this lucid and highly evocative portrait of a writer who became and has remained a cult hero for generations of British youth, nothing has been glossed over. Drawing on a wealth of contemporary reminiscences and much anecdotal material, author Tony Gould reveals a passionate, complex and extremely difficult man who proved such a remarkable 'inside outsider'.

Review:

"MacInnes may have been a maverick in his own time, but he is perhaps the most eloquent spokesman for our own." - Literary Review

About the Author:

Tony Gould was born in 1938 and grew up on a farm in Devon. He served as a National Service officer in the 1/7th Gurkha Rifles and was invalided out of the army with polio in 1959. He read English at Cambridge. He has been a BBC radio producer and literary editor at New Society and then, after the two magazines amalgamated, at the New Statesman. He is the author of several books, including Inside Outsider: the Life and Times of Colin MacInnes (1983, and editor of Absolute MacInnes: the Best of Colin MacInnes, 1985), Death in Chile: a Memoir and a Journey (1992), A Summer Plague: Polio and Its Survivors (1995), Imperial Warriors: Britain and the Gurkhas (1999), and Don't Fence Me In: Leprosy in Modern Times (2005).
