His father, an inveterate gambler, was Scot and mother came from South AfricA. the family lived in hotels and boardinghouses and moved from place to place depending upon the father's gambling luck. Wilson's siblings played transvestite games, in which he also participated. Later Wilson depicted his rootless hotel life in the autobiographical work WILD GARDEN (1963). After graduating from Merton College, Oxford, where he studied medieval history and developed his acting talents, Wilson pursued a number of jobs. He joined the British Library and worked there as a book cataloger, and eventually became deputy to the superintendent of the Reading Room. During World War II Wilson was a codebreaker at Bletchley, like the writers Henry Reed and Mary Wesley. Wilson worked at the library until 1955. the Mulberry Bush was his first - and only- produced play
