usually available in 5-10 days
This book contains Bruce Frederick Cummings' (pseudonym: W. N. P. Barbellion) 1919 work, "The Journal of a Disappointed Man". Hailed by Ronald Blythe as "among the most moving diaries ever created", it is full of astute and frank observations, interesting personal philosophy, and profound introspection. The first edition contains a preface by H. G. Wells, which caused many people think it a work of fiction; however, Well's dispelled this rumour even though the true identity of its author was unknown until his death. A fascinating and unique volume, "The Journal of a Disappointed Man" constitutes a must-read for all lovers of non-fiction and would make for a worthy addition to any collection. Bruce Frederick Cummings (1889 - 919) was an English diarist most famous for this work. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
