The Man Who Went Back is a story about a modern man who is injured in an auto accident and mysteriously wakes up in Roman times in England. Only after he is killed in a battle does he wake up again in the present. Readers who enjoy time travel, Arthurian legend, romance with strong heroine characters, and journeys through the British countryside will enjoy this Warwick Deeping novel.
Published in hardback on three continents in 1940, it also appeared in its entirety in “Amazing Adventures” science fiction magazine in the 1940s under the same title. Deeping’s early work is dominated by historical romances and this novel includes romance, historical ties and adds a science fiction time travel element.
Warwick Deeping (28 May 1877 – 20 April 1950) was an English novelist and short story writer. He abandoned medical practice to write full time and became one of the best-selling authors of the 1920s and 1930s, with seven novels making the bestseller list. Deeping was a prolific writer of short stories which appeared in such British magazines as Cassell’s, The Story-Teller, and The Strand. Well over 200 of these original short stories and essays were never seen in book form. His later novels usually dealt with modern life and were critical of many tendencies of twentieth-century civilization, often dealing with controversial issues such as alcoholism and medicine in the slums. His standpoint was generally that of passionate individualism, distrustful both of ruling elites and of the lower classes, who were often presented as a threat to his embattled middle-class protagonists.
We currently have thirty-four Warwick Deeping titles at this site with more to come. Readers who enjoy Warwick Deeping’s style of fiction writing might also enjoy Kitty, The Woman at the Door, or Old Pybus.
