Norman Douglas's notorious reputation attracted many admirers. Sophisticated visitors to Florence during the interwar years sought him out at the city's cafés and restaurants. His admirers included many queer and radical women, like Bryher, Nancy Cunard, and Rebecca West. Douglas's refusal to hide his pederastic relationships from public view also caused interpersonal conflicts. Douglas and D.H. Lawrence repeatedly fell out, in large part because of Lawrence's distaste for Douglas's sexual behavior.

Keywords:   Norman Douglas, Florence, Nancy Cunard, D. H. Lawrence, Bryher, pederasty
