Dracula Part One

Dracula Part One: Sea and ships, graves and benches The Curiously Specific Book Club

We’re taking on a book which is as much a myth as it is a novel: Bram Stoker’s 1897 chiller, Dracula. Like Stoker’s eponymous neck-botherer, we find ourselves washed up in Whitby, one of the most theatrical settings we’ve ever seen for a book. We hunt down the bench where the Count attacks poor Lucy Westenra, and stand on the beach where his ship crashes into the shore of England. We discuss goths and sleepwalking and wonder why it is, exactly, that anyone would ask where they could find Dracula’s grave?If you want to hear our episodes without ads, as soon as they’re available, subscribe to our Patreon page.
