'A bedazzling jewel of sophisticated pleasures, the best book yet on the world's greatest lover.' -- Simon Sebag Montefiore, Evening Standard Magazine 'enthralling ... It is hard to conceive of a juicier, more informative account of social and sexual mores of 18th century Europe.' -- Daily Mail 20080613 'exhilarating ... he has managed to make this story feel so fresh again.' -- Guardian 20080816 "The thing is to dazzle,' wrote Casanova. In this enthralling book he dazzles once again, and so, too, does his biographer.' -- Mail on Sunday 20080816 'Elegant and scrupulously researched, with an admirable feeling for the age' -- Spectator 20080816 'sober, thoughtful and affectionate new biography' -- Financial Times 20080628 'Magisterial, utterly gripping ... a vivid evocation of Georgian London.' -- Philip Hoare, Independent 20080628 'In Ian Kelly [Casanova] has at last found his Boswell ... a great blast of a book, packed with energy and information, marinated in sympathy and understanding, and rippling with enthusiasm right down to the final footnote.' -- Sunday Telegraph 20080622 'Splendid ... What makes this book much more than just a relaxed, racy biography is the way its author brings to life not just the man but also the time in which he lived.' -- The Sunday Times 20080622 'Lush, funny, exhaustively researched and beautifully written' -- Herald 20080622 'A wonderful melange of social history and biography.

Lushly illustrated, carefully researched and intelligently argued, this biography will entertain and enlighten.' -- George Walden, Daily Mail 20080622 'In Kelly's hands, the story makes for a thrilling read' -- The Sunday Times 20080622 'sparkling... Kelly has a fine way with libertines and dandies.' -- Independent 20080622 'Marvellous' -- Books Quarterly 20080623 'delicious biography ... He was probably, as he would be the first to admit, the most interesting man who ever lived, as this vivid and vibrant biography suggests' -- Sunday Times Biography of the Year 20081214
