Gerald Brenan, a British author born on 7 April 1894 on the Island of Malta, lived in Spain from 1919 until his death in Churriana, Malaga, in 1987.

He is considered to be one of the foreign writers who best told the history of Spain in the 20th century.
Gerald Brenan arrived in Spain in the summer of 1919, leaving behind London and the Bloomsbury Group, a circle of progressive intellectuals. He lived in the Alpujarras in Granada and in Churriana. In this town in Malaga he lived with his wife, American poet Gamel Woosley, author of "Malaga in Flames". His is buried in the English Cemetery of Malaga.
Some of the most works by Gerald Brenan are "South of Granada" (1957), which was adapted to film by director Fernando Colomo (2003), based on the writer's autobiographical novel.

" Old age takes away from us what we have inherited and gives us what we have earned" (Gerald Brenan)
