Having escaped prison, the adventurous womanizer, Casanova, makes his way to Paris and starts a new profession by convincing people that he is an alchemist. His antics quickly catches the attention of prominent figures, among these Madame de Pompadour, chief mistress of the king, who like many other noble people are obsessed with alchemy and the search for philosopher's stone. Highly requested for his supposed knowledge, Casanova finds a way to capitalize on his charm and his cleverness, however - being the sexually driven man that he is - his bedroom combats, once again, threaten to put a stop to it all.
Like the two previous volumes of Casanova's memoirs, "The Eternal Quest" is engaging and beautifully written. Casanova has an incomparable charisma that shines through the pages and makes him capable of getting away with just about anything.
