The lifeless too have hopes...
And one of the hopeful lifeless is Alex Resartus: obtuse professor, imprecise novelist, schizophrenic...and vampire.
As an obtuse professor, he bewilders and frustrates his bored scholars; as an imprecise novelist with a once-promising popularity, he wants to get better his inventive powers, yet his shattered brain stands within the manner. As a schizophrenic, Alex's brain is "broken", and during this most original novel, A SELF-MADE MONSTER, Alex plans to reorganize his damaged brain with entire blood. For Alex's detailed quirk - either his blessing and his curse - is that he's taking at the qualities of his sufferers in such a lot fabulous ways.
Alex sees the intense and socially backward scholar, Edward Head, as his savior: Edward's disciplined and strong brain is simply the tonic Alex must rejuvenate his artistic powers. yet Alex isn't the just one with hopes. The dwelling between him have their very own hopes. Edward¿s hopes are carnal. He wants either Holly Dish, an amalgam of sweaty undergraduate daydreams, and Claire candy, a returning grownup coed who's either cool and mysterious. Holly and Claire too have their very own hopes, as does the quick and cynical Jimmy Stubbs, who hates to review and likes to drink beer and scheme. The hopes of every personality intersect and at last violently knot - generating a twisting climax that leaves a few characters useless and others approximately to appreciate an incredible monetary windfall.
By turns violent and humorous, A SELF-MADE MONSTER is without doubt one of the most original vampire novels ever released. It strips away the drained clichés and crimson prose of the vampire tale and replaces them with dead-on characterizations, a galloping plot, and a brand new belief of the vampire itself.
