Who was Dracula's father? and other puzzles in Bram Stoker's gothic masterpiece

Sutherland, John, 1938- author

When it was first published in 1897, Irish author Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' was ranked by the Daily Mail above work by Mary Shelley and Edgar Allan Poe, as well as 'Wuthering Heights'. Yet it never made Stoker any money. Since 1931's film 'Nosferatu the Vampire', however, it has never been out of print and is legendary among fans of the dark, macabre and mysterious. Critic John Sutherland, a Dracula fan since childhood explores the enigmas and puzzles of this towering giant of gothic novels such as: Who was Dracula's father? Why does the Count come to England? Does the Count actually give Jonathan a 'love bite'? Why does every country we know of have a vampire legend? And finally - how long is it before we're all vampires?
