Description

George Norman Douglas (1868–1952) was a British writer. He was born in Thüringen, Austria. Douglas was brought up mainly at Tilquhillie, Deeside. He was educated at Yarlet Hall and Uppingham School in England, and then at a grammar school in Karlsruhe. His most famous work South Wind is a fictionalised account of life in Capri, with controversial references to moral and sexual issues. His travel books such as his 1915 Old Calabria were appreciated for the quality of their writing. They also combine erudition, insight, whimsicality, and some fine prose. These works include Siren Land (1911), Fountains in the Sand, described as "rambles amongst the oases of Tunisia" (1912), Old Calabria (1915), Together (Austria) (1923) and Alone (Italy) (1921).
