About this product
- DescriptionBorn in 1725 to Italian and Spanish parentage, Giacomo Casava lived a long and exciting life. A scholar and an adventurer Casava travelled widely throughout Europe and Russia associating with rulers and Kings. For a time he was in the service of the army and he became a great political stirrer. But he vacillated between fortune and misfortune and often resorted to gaming and fiddling too. Of course Casava is most well-kwn for his womanizing and he reveals time after time how he just couldn't help falling in love! His eloquence and charm will t be lost on the listener either: the writing is remarkably modern, accessible and funny too. It took Casava eighteen years to write his memoirs and a further one hundred for them to be classified as genuine. Available w for the first time on audio and brilliantly brought to life by the effervescent Benedict Cumberbatch, in this first volume of his memoirs Casava charts his childhood and life as a young man in Venice and Italy. Benedict Cumberbatch is one of Britain's brightest young actors. He starred as Stephen Hawking in the BBC's celebrated Hawking and plays the lead role in Michael Apted's 2006 film Amazing Grace. As well as his screen credits, Benedict has worked extensively in theatre and radio drama and recently as Sherlock Holmes in the popular TV series.
