Did Somerset Maugham (born today in 1874) acually come from Somerset, or spend any time there beyond maybe a holiday-trip to Cheddar Gorge or a research trip to Glastonbury? He was born at the English Embassy in Paris, and died in Nice, and I have a strong sense of Margate, which is definitely not Somerset...
And for the third consecutive day, a truly great writer, who just happens to be female, and British (alright, English) - Virginia Woolf, born today, 1882.
