Reviews

'Lisa Hopkins's literary life of Bram Stoker is indispensable to anyone interested in the author of Dracula. Using Stoker's most famous novel as a touchstone, Hopkins moves out into the lesser known works and discusses them through the lens of Stoker's learning, travels, and personal relationships. Written with verve and clarity, Bram Stoker: A Literary Life takes us, like Stoker's own fiction, into mysterious caves and passageways, and we are richer for having made the journey.' - Professor Steven Bruhm, Mount St Vincent University, Canada

'Hopkins will certainly encourage us to return, with fresh eyes, to Stoker's enduring vampire tale, and inspire those reades familiar only with Dracula to explore Stoker's fiction much further.' - Glennis Byron, The Oscholars

'...contains some fresh ideas as well as an effective and readable synthesis of the more recent critical work...students of Stoker will find much here that is useful.' - Nicholas Daly, Gothic Studies
