Colin Wilson's (1931-2013) first book, 'The Outsider', was published in 1956. It brought him instant recognition as one of the most radical thinkers of his generation. 'Brandy of the Damned' was first published in 1964, and in revised form in 1967. In this book Wilson navigates a fascinating journey through the world of music, providing insights into Mozart and Beethoven, provocatively tackling what was then the 'modern' music of Schoenberg and Stravinsky, and speculating on the nature and spirit of jazz and many other musical subjects.
