THE LOST DIARY OF DON JUAN by Douglas Carlton Abrams

The Lost Diary of Don Juan
Douglas Carlton Abrams
Historical Fiction
Simon & Schuster
336 pages

In a time of discovery and decadence, when the gold that poured endlessly into the port of Sevilla devalued money, marriage, and love itself, young Juan Tenorio was abandoned and raised by nuns. He grew up loving and worshipping all women, but a clandestine affair with one of the sisters forces him to leave the Church—and his plans for the priesthood—forever. Juan becomes a spy, as well as the world’s greatest libertine. But far from the heartless seducer that legend recounts, he seeks liberation and redemption as much as personal pleasure and gratification. He begins to keep a diary of his greatest adventures and the arts of passion he has mastered. The most dangerous adventure of all—the irresistible fall into the madness of love with the only woman who could ever make him forget all others—finally compels him to confess everything.

Douglas Carlton Abrams’ magical debut novel captures the heart of the Spanish Golden Age and the secret life of the world’s greatest lover—Don Juan—who came to embody the spirit of desire that would inflame the modern age.

  4. WOW! Excellent trailer. It really makes a difference to hear the book explained from the author’s POV.

    Now I’m anxious and excited to read the book.
