WHO IS DRACULA’S FATHER?

John Sutherland presents his toothsome new collection of literary puzzles in which he scrutinises the fine and not-so-fine points of Bram Stoker’s Gothic masterpiece, Dracula and its shape-shifting, bloodsucking Count. Learn about Stoker’s love-rivalry with Oscar Wilde, his ‘dreadful’ stage adaptation of Dracula, performed to an audience of two, a tantalising dropped prelude set in Munich. Take a peek behind Dracula’s cloak and find out: Who is Dracula’s father? Who, for that matter, is Quincy P. Morris? Why does the Count take such pointless risks? And why are there still so few vampires?
The book also includes Dracula Digested by John Crace, author of The Guardian’s Digested Reads column.
John Sutherland is Lord Northcliffe Professor Emeritus at University College London and an eminent scholar in the field of Victorian fiction, and is author of many works including The Longman Companion to Victorian Fiction and the bestselling popular titles Is Heathcliff a Murderer? and Can Jane Eyre be Happy?, and such scholarly jeux d’esprit as Curiosities of Literature.
Abraham “Bram” Stoker born in Dublin in 1847, is best known today for his 1897 novel Dracula. In his lifetime, he was better known as the personal assistant of actor Henry Irving, and business manager of Irving’s Lyceum Theatre in London. He died in 1912.
