Giacomo / Jacques Casanova de Seingalt’s autobiography is pretty strong stuff. He is amoral leaning towards sociopathy, often self-congratulatory, extremely energetic and apparently enormously talented. Over a brief period when he is 23 in 1747 he manages to
a) Seduce a rich farmer’s daughter and propose marriage
b) Change his mind, find another husband for her whom she is happy to accept, participate in the wedding
c) Disinter a random corpse and cut off one of its arms with a hunting knife
d) Use the arm for a nocturnal vengeful practical joke that frightens the victim so badly that he is permanently mentally incapacitated
e) File a written affidavit with a criminal court that he has not at all raped a young prostitute, on the contrary, he has beaten her with a broomstick because she refused to have sex with him
And all of this within 27 pages.
