born as: George Norman Douglass

Essayist and novelist who wrote of southern Italy, where he lived for many years. In his later years he lived on the island of Capri, which is the setting of his most famous book, South Wind (1917). All his books, whether fiction, topography, essays, or autobiography, have a charm arising from Douglas' unhibited expression of a bohemian, aristocratic personality. His prose is considered an excellent example of the conversational style. - Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature
