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.
