something in the blood final

 

David J. Skal discusses and signs Something in the Blood: The Untold Story of Bram Stoker, the Man Who Wrote Dracula.

Introduction by Christopher Bram, author of Gods and Monsters.
Bram Stoker, despite having a name nearly as famous as his legendary undead Count, has remained a puzzling enigma. In a talk with Christopher Bram based on his new book— Something in the Blood: The Untold Story of Bram Stoker, the Man Who Wrote Dracula— David J. Skal exhumes the inner world and strange genius of the writer who conjured an undying cultural icon. The psychosexual dimensions of Stoker’s passionate youthful correspondence with Walt Whitman, his punishing work ethic, and his slavish adoration of the actor Sir Henry Irving are examined in splendidly Gothic detail.

Following his talk, Skal will sign copies of Something in the Blood.

To reserve a copy of Something in the Blood, please write to us at contact@bgsqd.com.
