Editorial Reviews

New York Times William Grimes
Like many of Casanova's conquests, the teenaged Savorgnan sisters loved the game of love, and Ms. Summers does too. She revels in the details of sealed letters, secret assignations and pillow talk. The mist-enshrouded streets of Venice, and the hidden niches of pleasure parks in London and Paris, ideal for assignations and furtive lovemaking, stir her pen. Push past the high-minded words about giving women their voices, and "Casanova's Women" looks very much like a box of bonbons. Ms. Summers has simply jumped at the opportunity to retell Casanova's life, in soap-opera style, and to linger over the more intriguing love affairs, with no juicy details omitted. And what's wrong with that?
