Synopsis

Giacomo Casanova arrives in England in the summer of 1763 at the age of thirty-eight, seeking a respite from his restless travels and liaisons. But the lure of company proves too hard to resist and the dazzlingly pretty face of young Marie Charpillon even harder. Casanova's pursuit of this elusive bewitcher drives him from exhilaration to despair and to attempt to reinvent himself in the roles of labourer, writer and country squire. Based on a little-known episode in Casanova's life, this is a scintillating, poignant, often comic portrait of a far more complex figure than legend suggests and of the decadent society in which he operated. Beautifully written, gripping and surprising, Casanova is a superb successor to INGENIOUS PAIN.

Author Choice

An enormously evocative and artful account of Casanova’s visit to England in 1763, wherein the decadent legend is revealed to be far more complicated than his reputation. Miller is a writer who understands that we are never simply the sum of our parts, and that love remains, on some level, unknowable, other, even as it quickens and inspires.
