Book Description

June 10 2006
It's 2005, Venice. Giacomo Casanova wakes in a familiar room. His most recent memory is of dying the night before. However, his body is young again and his sexual powers have returned. In search of an explanation for his supernatural resurrection, he ventures out into the streets of modern Venice. Much has changed, but the women are as beautiful as ever. In a nearby bar, he encounters Cristiana, a young waitress who is quickly seduced by his old-school charm. One morning, shortly after, Casanova receives an invitation to a mysterious masked ball. He and Cristiana attend the event, which turns out to be opulently decadent; an orgy that even Casanova is shocked by. As he and Cristiana retreat to the beach to embrace without the company of others, Casanova spies the arrival of a power-boat. A tall, imposing man disembarks. He leads a stunning young woman, naked but for her mask and high heels, by a leash fastened to a collar around her neck. Casanova is hypnotized by this vision. Dragging Cristiana reluctantly along, Casanova attempts to follow the couple but soon loses their trail in the confusion of sexual activity. He is determined to find the other woman again.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Celebrated sexual conquistador Giacomo Casanova dies peacefully in 1798, only to wake up in 21st-century Venice a virile young man again, with a mysterious invitation to an elegant, orgiastic masquerade. So begins this contemporary novel of Casanova, "directed" by Jakubowski, in which 16 erotica writers, including Sage Vivant and M. Christian, each contribute a chapter. In these writers' skillful hands, Casanova seduces a naïve barista who helps him navigate the modern world, becomes an expert in sadomasochism and falls hard for a stunning Amazonian woman named O. He travels across America, from slave auctions to cemeteries, drug dens to dungeons, in order to find O and wrest her from the clutches of the Power Company, an extensive network of leather-clad masters and slaves that may just control the world. Several contributors also write crime fiction, and their expertise shows in Casanova's hunt for the ultimate object of his lust. And of course, being Casanova, there are plenty of sexual conquests to detail along the way. While chapters vary in quality and content, there's much naughty, pulse-quickening satisfaction to be found. (June)
