Vampire Legends in Contemporary American Culture Book Description :

"William Patrick Day looks at how writers and filmmakers as diverse as Anne Rice and Andy Warhol present the vampire as an archetype of human identity and how many postmodern vampire stories reflect our fear of and attraction to addiction and violence.
