    Kindle Joseph O'Connor ô Shadowplay Kindle Õ ô shadowplay download, Shadowplay ePUBI do like books set around the theatre This was a very evocative and atmospheric read and I really enjoyed the clever elements that lead us through the journey of Bram’s writing Dracula Irving was a well drawn character and I really felt for Bram’s poor wife But I felt the book went off in too many different directions and the style of chopped up narrative is not one I enjoy A very good read though

    Kindle Joseph O'Connor ô Shadowplay Kindle Õ ô shadowplay download, Shadowplay ePUBShadowplay by Joseph O’Connor is a tenderly observed account of the – sometimes surprising – inspirations that eventually led to the creation of what many call the masterpiece of gothic literature Dracula or The Undead written by Bram Stoker is an epistolary novel in which imagined documents form the development of narrative Echoing this style O’Connor shows how Stoker’s work was influenced by certain people by the places and events observed during the years the author spent working as the business manager at London’s Lyceum theatreThe building as we see it first is decaying damp and full of cats Haunted by a ghost called Mina it provides a fine allusion to the castle of Count Dracula With the scaffolding and riggings of the stage th

    Kindle Joseph O'Connor ô Shadowplay Kindle Õ ô shadowplay download, Shadowplay ePUB“Like a lot of thumping good stories it starts on train”So begins Shadowplay a beautifully written surprisingly sweet account of Bram Stoker’s life and perhaps the things that inspired Dracula that were connected to Stoker’s tenure as a theatre manager at the Lyceum First here is what this book is not A vampire novel If you’re looking for a new spin on Stoker’s Dracula this isn’t it I’d suggest Lauren Owen’s The uick or Elizabeth Kostova’s The Historian if that’s what you’re after The author does try to connect real life figures in Stoker’s life to characters from Dracula but that’s actually the weakest part of

    Kindle Joseph O'Connor ô Shadowplay Kindle Õ ô shadowplay download, Shadowplay ePUBJoseph O’Connor’s Shadowplay must be one of the most underrated books of the year It won the Eason Novel of the Year at the 2019 Irish Book Awards but it doesn’t seem to have garnered much attention in the UK or elsewhere And yet this is a truly amazing book one of my favourite reads of the year and deserving of a much larger audienceSet largely in London in 1878 it brims with atmosphere and menace and pure Victorian gothic drama
