The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova

The Historian

Elizabeth Kostova

Hoorah! The huge Gothic Novel is alive and well in a book which owes much more to Bram Stoker and Bela Lugosi than Anne Rice and Tom Cruise. Don't be put off by the changes of locality and eras - just go with the chase to find the elusive main character - Dracula himself!

Extract

'It's most remarkable our meeting like this. But I'm distressed to hear about Professor Rossi's disappearance - very distressed. That's dreadfully strange. I wouldn't have sworn before hearing your story that there was more involved in researching Dracula than the usual stuff.'
