The Wager by Donna Jo Napoli
Don Giovanni lost all of his belongings and money in a tsunami. Desperate, he makes a deal with the Devil. He receives a purse that can create any sum of money, but with a catch. He cannot bathe, comb his hair, shave his beard or change his clothes for three years, three months, and three days. If he does, he will lose his soul.
An interesting concept that I think was well executed. Not for the faint of heart, but a good book none the less. I would recommend it.
