THE MAN- THE MYTH- AND THE MONSTER
A freely roving meditation on some versions of the vampire:
Historical-Gilles de Rais, Vlad the Impaler and Elisabeth Bathory-
or Fictional-as in Matthew Lewis' THE MONK, Rider Haggard's SHE and F. W. Murnau's film, NOSFERATU- Or even in the hectic flush of life, as in the case of Hell's Angels earning their Red Wings, or an encounter group feeding on each other's misery, or one young man who has developed a method for sucking blood from his male and female lovers' veins without breaking the skin.
"The climax of Wolf's book is an extended discussion of Bram Stoker and his novel, the best so far published." -George Stade, New York Times Book Review
