Item description for Casanova: A Study in Self-Portraiture by Stefan Zweig...
Casanova, the Venetian who lived most of his life in exile from his beloved city, created his own myth, which in turn is a reflection of the nature of the city itself. 'Imaginative writers', writes Zweig, 'rarely have a biography, and men who have biographies are only in exceptional circumstances able to write them'. Casanova is a splendid, almost unique, exception.

More About Stefan Zweig
Stefan Zweig was born in 1881 in Vienna, into a wealthy Austrian-Jewish family. He studied in Berlin and Vienna and was first known as a poet and translator, then as a biographer. Between the wars, Zweig was an international bestseller with a string of hugely popular novellas including Letter from an Unknown Woman, Amok and Fear. In 1934, with the rise of Nazism, he left Austria, and lived in London, Bath and New York-a period during which he produced his most celebrated works: his only novel, Beware of Pity, and his memoir, The World of Yesterday. He eventually settled in Brazil, where in 1942 he and his wife were found dead in an apparent double suicide. Much of his work is available from Pushkin Press. Translated from the German by Will Stone."
