Inspirations for The TAKER: Casanova in Bolzano

There aren't too many books I read more than once (it seems there are too many great books I've yet to read to go over ground I've already trod), but CASANOVA IN BOLZANO is one of them. It was written by Sandor Marai, the great Hungarian novelist, and like all Marai novels, CASANOVA features a plot like an infinite set of Russian nesting dolls. It really is a complex and twisty discourse on love, all the possible facets of love. Don't settle for the disappointing movie that was supposedly "based" on the book ("Casanova in Love" with Heath Ledger); read Marai's book.
