Bram Stoker

In his first work since The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes, Leslie S. Klinger returns with this illustrated homage to Bram Stoker's Dracula. Most surprisingly, Klinger accepts Stoker's contention that the Dracula tale is based on historical fact. Traveling through two hundred years of popular culture and myth as well as graveyards and the wilds of Transylvania, Klinger's notes illuminate every aspect of this haunting narrative (including a detailed examination of the original typescript of Dracula, with its strikingly different ending, previously unavailable to scholars).
