Staff Reviews


Never before have you seen Dracula like this. Dracula Daily isn't just an internet sensation bringing together people year after year, and this book is not just "Dracula with commentary." By reading each diary entry and letter in the order they would have been written, Kirkland is forcing us to really take the time and sit in how horrific some of Dracula's story are. How long was Jonathan Harker really trapped in that castle? How quickly did Lucy Westenra go from perfectly happy to on deaths door? Grab your copy now to get ready for Jonathan Harker's first diary entry --his journey starts May 3rd!

Description


The wildly popular email newsletter that has been described as an "internet sensation" (The New York Times) and "the coolest book club on the internet" (Fast Company) is breathing new life into Bram Stoker's classic vampire novel. Now, the internet phenomenon can be experienced in this deluxe hardcover book that includes hilarious commentary and artwork from Dracula Daily readers. 

Thanks to Dracula Daily, the email newsletter that delivers the classic vampire novel in bite-sized chunks, "an old story about the undead is getting a new life" (NPR). Combining Stoker's original text alongside reader-generated content, this version of Dracula is a fun and immersive experience, perfect for vampire scholars, Dracula Daily readers, and newcomers to the story.

Inside, you'll find a rich selection of artwork and memes from the newsletter's hundreds of thousands of subscribers. From comics celebrating Dracula's famous wall-climbing ability to armchair analysis of the novel's complicated love triangles, the witty commentary and colorful fan art brings a unique twist to the classic tale.
