Anne Douglas Sedgwick (28 March 1873 – 19 July 1935) was an American-born British writer. The daughter of a businessman, she was born in Englewood, New Jersey but at age nine her family moved to London. Although she made return visits to the United States, she lived in England for the remainder of her life.
Her novels explored the contrast in values between Americans and Europeans.
