Like anyone with an ego, he would first be amazed at all the entries. Second, I think he would be surprised that he was an icon today. He had an endearing humility evident in his writings. He was the son of actors and never claimed to be anything more. Lastly, I think he would be sad to be called an infamous seducer. “I do not seduce, but only submit.” This lovely quote from his memoir was, of course, followed by a story of meticulous seduction. Oh, well, Casanova was Casanova.
It is certainly fun to imagine what he might have thought about his internet presence, and imagine I do. In Conjuring Casanova lonely stressed ER doc, Elizabeth Hillman, conjures him from 1774 to 2016.
Conjuring Casanova is available for pre-order now, and in bookstores June 7th!
