The fiction of ET , novelist, short-story writer, and travel writer, acquired a high reputation for its force and distinctive style and tone, and notoriety for a degree of sexual explicitness rare in serious women writers. Best known from the 1950s onwards for her early novels set in her native Bohemia, she was rediscovered for her erotic writings at the end of the twentieth century, but rapidly forgotten again. Her death in 2006 went unnoticed by the English-speaking press.
