The story of San Michele by Axel Munthe ( Book )
149 editions published between 1929 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,050 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Munthe was a true Renaissance man a scientist and doctor as well as a poet who was a friend of Henry James, Somerset Maugham, and others. In this 1929 volume, he offers an account of San Michele, a house he built on the site of Roman emperor Tiberius's villa on the Isle of Capri off Italy's southern coast. His weaving of the story of the house with Italian history, mythology, and culture is reminiscent of 18th- and 19th-century travelogs. This book was a smash in several languages for many years. It is now considered a modern classic

""Norstrom voulait que j'aille à Capri quelques semaines pour un repas complet ; il était convaincu que je reviendrais reprendre mon travail parfaitement remis. Je déclarai que jamais plus je ne retournerais à Paris si je m'en allais maintenant, je détestais de plus en plus cette vie artificielle d'une grande ville. Je ne voulais pas gaspiller davantage mon temps dans cette atmosphère de nausée et de pourriture. Je voulais m'en aller pour de bon. Je ne voulais plus être un docteur à la mode ; plus j'avais de malades, plus mes chaînes me paraissaient lourdes. J'avais d'autres sujets d'intérêt dans la vif que de m'occuper de richards américains ou de femelles neurasthéniques. Je désirais mener une vie simple au milieu de gens simples et naturels. S'ils ne savaient ni lire ni écrire tant mieux. Tout ce qu'il me fallait était une chambre blanchie à la chaux, une table de bois blanc, deux chaises et un piano, le pépiement des oiseaux devant ma fenêtre ouverte et la voix lointaine de la mer."
