    Fuentes, Carlos (1928-2012)
    VLAD.

    Edition: First printing.

    Champaign: Dalkey Archive Press. (2012) dj. Hardcover first edition - This award-winning Mexican novelist offers his unique update to the vampire legend: "Where is a modern-day vampire to roost? Why not Mexico City, populated by ten million blood sausages (that is, people), and a police force who won't mind a few disappearances? . . In this sly sequel [to Dracula], Vlad really is undead: dispossessed after centuries of mayhem by Eastern European wars and rampant blood shortages. More than a postmodern riff on "the vampire craze," Vlad is also an anatomy of the Mexican bourgeoisie, as well as our culture's ways of dealing with death. . .

    Champaign: Dalkey Archive Press. (2012) dj. Hardcover first edition - This award-winning Mexican novelist offers his unique update to the vampire legend: "Where is a modern-day vampire to roost? Why not Mexico City, populated by ten million blood sausages (that is, people), and a police force who won't mind a few disappearances? . . In this sly sequel [to Dracula], Vlad really is undead: dispossessed after centuries of mayhem by Eastern European wars and rampant blood shortages. More than a postmodern riff on "the vampire craze," Vlad is also an anatomy of the Mexican bourgeoisie, as well as our culture's ways of dealing with death. . . Vlad has need of both a lawyer and a real-estate agent in order to establish his new kingdom, and Yves Navarro and his wife Asuncion fit the bill nicely. Having recently lost a son, might they not welcome the chance to see their remaining child live forever? More importantly, are the pleasures of middle-class life enough to keep one from joining the legions of the damned?" Translated from the Spanish by Ethan Shaskan Bumas and Alejandro Branger. Small format. 122 pp plus 4 pp publisher's ads. ISBN: 978-1564787798.
