The second novel from the critically acclaimed author of Pure - a portrait of the legendary Casanova at a turning point in his life and loves

In 1763, the famed Venetian seducer Giacomo Casanova arrives in England intent on a respite from his restless travels and liaisons, but cannot long resist the lure of company or a pretty face. This time, though, it is he who falls in love, and with an elusive quarry.

Here is Casanova in unfamiliar guise: thwarted, driven by his emotions and, in middle-age, forced to reassess his whole life.
