Hampstead Heath and the Rise and Fall of the author Colin Wilson

The always fabulous Another Nickel In The Machine has posted a fascinating article about the British writer and philosopher, Colin Wilson. While writing The Outsider in the British Library by day he slept rough on Hampstead Heath at night.

On this day in 1956 he met Marilyn Monroe and according to Wilson  there was a definite ‘connection’ with Marilyn and she actually grasped his hand as they made their way through the throng to their waiting cars.
