German writer Franziska zu Reventlow died one hundred years ago today in Locarno. Last year I had the honour of issuing the first of Reventlow’s works to appear in English, The Guesthouse at the Sign of the Teetering Globe (originally published 1917). Below you can find out more about Reventlow, the ‘bohemian countess’ who was possibly the most liberated woman of her age.
