Vampire in Love, Hardback Book


Gathered for the first time in English and spanning his entire career, Vampire in Love offers a selection of the Spanish master Enrique Vila-Matas's finest short stories.

An effeminate, hunchbacked barber on the verge of death falls in love with a choir boy.

A fledgling writer on barbiturates visits Marguerite Duras's Paris apartment and watches his dinner companion slip into the abyss.

An unsuspecting man receives a mysterious phone call from a lonely ophthalmologist and visits his abandoned villa.

The stories in Vampire in Love, selected and brilliantly translated by Margaret Jull Costa, are all told with Vila-Matas's delightful erudition and wit, and his provocative questioning of the interrelation of art and life.
