"Siddhartha" author (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

hesse

'siddhartha author' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for hesse that I've seen before include "German state, capital Wiesbaden" , "Hermann --, German writer" , "Hermann --, German author" , "poet" , "Ger. state; Hermann ---, novelist" .)

I've seen this clue in the King Feature Syndicate and the Wall Street Journal.
