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.
