Daniele Vare

Daniele Vare entered the diplomatic service and served in Vienna, Geneva, Copenhagen, and Luxembourg. However, his chief posting was in Peking, where he first arrived in 1912. During his time there he observed the overthrow of the Qing dynasty, civil war, and the effects of both the Russian Revolution and World War I as exiles fled into China from abroad. Many of these experiences became the subject matter of his novels."
