Praise for Dracula

“An exercise in masculine anxiety and nationalist paranoia, Stoker's novel is filled with scenes that are staggeringly lurid and perverse... The one in Highgate cemetery, where Arthur and Van Helsing drive a stake through the writhing body of the vampirised Lucy Westenra, is my favourite”

Sarah Waters

“It is splendid. No book since Mrs. Shelley's Frankenstein or indeed any other at all has come near yours in originality, or terror”

Bram Stoker’s Mother

“In my opinion Dracula is about how suffocating Victorian times were. The bonus is, you get vampires!”

Ryan Adams
