The Man Who Really Loved WomenBook - 1997 | 1st Farrar, Straus and Giroux ed
This generous, spirited man gave of himself without stint, and men and women alike rejoiced in his company. His whole art of being was, in fact, an exercise in happiness. Cocking a final snook at posterity, he became a moralist and insisted not only that pleasure was the first principle of existence but that true happiness came only in one's memory. Beyond pleasure there is happiness -- that is Casanova's legacy.
