Another rediscovered masterpiece from the author of Embers: an erotically charged novel–written within the framework of historical reality–about Casanova’s fateful encounter with the woman who finally defeats him.

In 1756 Giacomo Casanova escaped from the dreaded cells of Venice’s most infamous jail: it is at this moment that Sándor Márai begins his story. Stopping to rest at the Italian village of Bolzano, Casanova secures a loan to rebuild his life, and resumes his art of seduction. But there is another reason he has come to this particular village: the memory of a duel he fought long ago with the duke of Parma over a girl named Francesca. Casanova lost the fight; Francesca became the duke’s wife; and the duke spared Casanova’s life on condition that he never set eyes on her again. The village of Bolzano is part of the duke’s lands. Now an old man, the duke arrives at the inn with a love letter he has intercepted from his wife to Casanova. He could kill Casanova on the spot but instead makes him an irresistible offer, one that will ultimately be the downfall of the notorious lover.

Brimming with the richness and psychological tension that made Embers an international best seller, Casanova in Bolzano is further proof that Sándor Márai stands among the twentieth century’s greatest literary voices.

Recensione:

“Scintillating. . . . An intricate duel of wits. . . . Casanova in Bolzano provides posthumous evidence of Marai’s neglected brilliance.” –Chicago Tribune

“A novel of philosophical adventure. . . . Suspenseful, ornate, discursive to the verge of synaptic collapse (ours), and witty to the occasional verge of terror. . . . Ingenious.”
The New York Times Book Review
From the Trade Paperback edition.

L'autore:

Sándor Márai was born in Kassa, in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, in 1900, and died in San Diego, California, in 1989. He rose to fame as one of the leading literary novelists in Hungary in the 1930s. Profoundly antifascist, he survived the war, but persecution by the Communists drove him from the country in 1948, first to Italy, then to the United States. His novel Embers was published for the first time in English in 2001.

Sándor Márai’s Embers is available in Vintage paperback.

Translated from the Hungarian by George Szirtes
