W. N. P. Barbellion

The Journal of a Disappointed Man by English naturalist and diarist Bruce Frederick Cummings (writing under the name W. N. P. Barbellion) was first published in 1919. With an introduction by H. G. Wells, it was first believed to have been a work of fiction by Wells himself. It was in fact, as the author described it; 'a study in the nude'. Despite being rejected by HarperCollins at the time, for displaying a 'lack or morals' which they felt might reflect on them, the book has been described as a work of genius. Cummings suffered from multiple sclerosis, and the book has also been praised by other sufferers of the disease, as giving an eloquent portrayal of the struggles they go through. An editor's note at the very end of the book claims Barbellion died on 31 December 1917, but Cummings actually lived for nearly two more years.
