Sundays with Vlad


Sundays with Vlad: From Pennsylvania to Transylvania, One Man’s Quest to Live in the World of the Undead
by Paul Bibeau

A wacky tour-de-force through the history of vampires from a pop culture perspective. From the historical roots of the Dracula of history and the Dracula of literature and current Romania’s love-hatred of the idea of making money from its most famous icon, through a whirlwind of bad vampire movies, LARPS and the vampire subculture, this is a fun book to read in little bites at a time. I also like Bibeau’s version of the “real” story behind Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

Recommended when you need to procrastinate and yet extend your pop culture knowledge in a way most appropriate to the current social clime, i.e., Halloween. Get in touch with your inner Count Chocula.
