Description
In this captivating novel, the famed Venetian seducer and adventurer, Giacomo Casanova, relives a turning point in his life. In 1763, at the age of thirty-eight, he arrives in England seeking a respite from his restless travels and liaisons, to revive his jaded palate, and to shake off the lugubrious moods that have begun to trouble him. Before long the lure of company proves too hard to resist, and the dazzlingly pretty face of the young Made Charpillon even harder.

Casanova's pursuit of the elusive bewitcher drives him from exhilaration to despair and to flirt with the roles of laborer, writer, and country squire as he attempts to reinvent himself. Here ties a far more complex, fascinating figure than legend suggests, a charismatic man who, for all his conquests, begins to doubt his worth and purpose. It is a scintillating, poignant, often comic portrait, conjuring a decadent society in which youth and beauty formed a precariously finite currency. Following Andrew Miller's acclaimed and prize-winning debut, Casanova in Love confirms the presence of an outstanding new novelist.
