First published anonymously in 1929 because its language was considered far too frank for public circulation, The Middle Parts of Fortune was hailed by T.S. Eliot and Ezra Pound, by Lawrence of Arabia and Ernest Hemingway, as an extraordinary novel.
Its author was in fact Frederic Manning, an Australian writer who fought in the Battle of the Somme in 1916, and who told his story of men at war from the perspective of an ordinary soldier.
About the Author: Frederic Manning was born in Sydney in 1882. In 1903 he joined Arthur Galton, a former tutor and lifelong friend, in his English vicarage, and set out on a literary career, publishing polite poetry, essays, reviews and stories. His subsequent experience in the army and in the appalling trench warfare at the Somme and at Ancre informed his great novel The Middle Parts of Fortune, which was published anonymously in 1929. Stripped of the profanities, an expurgated edition appeared in 1930 under the title Her Privates We. It became an immediate besteseller. Frederic Manning died in England in 1935.
