The New Annotated Dracula Cover

 

Staff Pick

Leslie Klinger does it again! By approaching Dracula as he did Sherlock Holmes, Klinger provides insights and historical inquiries into the validity of Stoker's "fictional" telling of the Count, ultimately leaving the reader to truly wonder if the Count is real or imaginary. With a plethora of annotations, supplemental material, and photos, this edition will entertain for weeks if not years on end. Klinger not only references the source material, but also places the Count's story in context with Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles and the Buffyverse, among other vampiric tales.

Publisher Comments:

Cause for international celebration — the most important and complete edition of Dracula in decades.

In his first work since his best-selling The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes, Leslie S. Klinger returns with this spectacular, lavishly illustrated homage to Bram Stoker's Dracula. With a daring conceit, 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 shockingly different ending, previously unavailable to scholars).

Klinger investigates the many subtexts of the original narrative — from masochistic, necrophilic, homoerotic, "dentophilic," and even heterosexual implications of the story to its political, economic, feminist, psychological, and historical threads. Employing the superb literary detective skills for which he has become famous, Klinger mines this 1897 classic for nuggets that will surprise even the most die-hard Dracula fans and introduce the vampire-prince to a new generation of readers.

Two-color throughout; 35 color and 400 black-and-white illustrations.

I heard Mr. Klinger tonight on the Coast to Coast radio show and can't wait for his November appearance at the Beaverton Powell's. His knowledge of both Dracula and the Sherlock Holmes stories (see his other annotated Homes books) is amazing.
