Publisher's Summary

The ultimate back story of the original Dracula, and its creator, Bram Stoker.

Best-selling author Frank Delaney deconstructs the Vampire myth through the ages, and shows us how Stoker’s 1897 novel, one of the most widely read books of all time, heightened the allure of sex, the glamour of blood, and the defeat of death in a way that continues to pulse - and faster than ever - on the page and on the screen.

Good travel companion

A delightful introduction to Bram Stoker's life and work. Frank Delaney traces the cultural roots of the Dracula myth back to Lilith and brings it up to Stoker's time; along the way he provides his own take on things like the town of Whitby with its ruined abbey and its red-tiled roofs. Delaney also provides useful background on Stoker's experience in the London theater working for Henry Irving. A good travel companion for any of the many excellent recordings of "Dracula" available on Audible.

Great but too short.

I could listen to Frank Delaney read the phone book. A master storyteller. The only negative is that it's too short. Try "Ireland " or Shannon for the full experience.
