Share this product:
Another rediscovered masterpiece from the hungarian novelist whose¬†embers¬†became an international bestseller‚aia sensuous, suspenseful, aphoristic novel about the world‚aos most notorious seducer and the encounter that changes him forever. In 1756 giacomo casanova escapes from a venetian prison and resurfaces in the italian village of bolzano. Here he receives an unwelcome visitor: the aging but still fearsome duke of parma, who years before had defeated casanova in a duel over a ravishing girl named francesca and spared his life on condition that he never see her again. Now the duke has taken francesca as his wife‚aiand intercepted a love letter from her to his old rival. Rather than kill casanova on the spot, he makes him a startling offer, one that is logical, perverse, and irresistible. Turning an historical episode into a dazzling fictional exploration of the clasp of desire and death,¬†casanova in bolzano¬†is further proof that s√°ndor m√°rai is one of the most distinctive voices of the twentieth century.
