9780140000115: South Wind (Penguin modern classics)

Set in a secluded and isolated island, this is a marvelous piece of fiction. The inhabitants of the land, some natives and some expatriates live in their imaginary havens. Their happiness depends upon the lingering fantasies. The landscape is beautifully sketched before the readers.

About the Author:

Norman Douglas lived a long and scandalous life. Born in 1868, the son of a Scottish father and Austrian mother, he was a lifelong hedonist, and spent much of his time "hopping it" across borders to avoid arrest. Douglas was at once the most irascible, intolerant and kindest of men. He was also a writer of near-genius. He died in 1952.
Foreword writer Jan Morris is an acclaimed writer, whose many books (there are more than 30) include Venice, Oxford and much travel writing. Her latest novel, Hav, was published in 2006. She lives in Wales.
