American Vampires: Fans, Victims, Practitioners
Dresser, Norine

NY: W W Norton & Co Inc, 1989. First First edition. Hardcover, 255 pps. with index.Illustrations. Folklorist Norine Dresser offers the fruit of her unique research into the American vampire phenomenon---from people who enhance their sex lives by imbibing (very small) amounts of another's blood, those who dress and act like the creatures, those with obsessions over television depictions--to the vampire images that occur frenquently in our daily lives in media, on cereal boxes, etc. Though written nearly 20 years ago, it is a work that has proven to be quite prescient given the more recent proliferation of the vampire theme in movies, television, books, etc. Near fine in very good dust jacket.
