    Epub Joseph O'Connor ¹ ¹ Shadowplay Kindle à shadowplay free, Shadowplay ePUBThe gifted Joseph O'Connor writes a smart and profoundly moving piece of historical fiction that is an absolute joy to read set in the Victorian era and featuring a famous trio of real life characters of the time Abraham 'Bram' Stoker a part time clerk in Dublin born in 1847 who went on to become business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London who died unable to achieve his dream of literary success receiving little support for his writing and the brilliant Shakespearean actor of his day Henry Irving and the towering Alice 'Ellen' Terry

    Epub Joseph O'Connor ¹ ¹ Shadowplay Kindle à shadowplay free, 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 the story in Shadowplay And the book never gives that delightfully macabre feel that Dracula does t
