Currently reading The Story of My Life by Giacomo Casanova.

I picked it up on our honeymoon. It was one of the only English translations that I could get my hands on that wasn't Dante. Its actually the abridged version, his actual biography is twelve volumes long. If I could find it, I would absolutely read the unabridged version. He's a fascinating narrator and the editors' clunky choices about what to abridge really smother his stories.

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the BBC production of Casanova, based on the above work, and written by Russel T. Davies.
