The useless too have hopes...
And one of the hopeful useless is Alex Resartus: obtuse professor, imprecise novelist, schizophrenic...and vampire.
As an obtuse professor, he bewilders and frustrates his bored scholars; as an vague novelist with a once-promising acceptance, he wants to recuperate his artistic powers, yet his shattered brain stands within the method. As a schizophrenic, Alex's brain is "broken", and during this most unique novel, A SELF-MADE MONSTER, Alex plans to reorganize his damaged brain with entire blood. For Alex's distinct quirk - either his blessing and his curse - is that he's taking at the features of his sufferers in such a lot impressive ways.
Alex sees the intense and socially backward scholar, Edward Head, as his savior: Edward's disciplined and robust brain is simply the tonic Alex must rejuvenate his artistic powers. yet Alex isn't the just one with hopes. The residing between him have their very own hopes. Edward¿s hopes are carnal. He wishes either Holly Dish, an amalgam of sweaty undergraduate daydreams, and Claire candy, a returning grownup coed who's either cool and mysterious. Holly and Claire too have their very own hopes, as does the quick and cynical Jimmy Stubbs, who hates to review and likes to drink beer and scheme. The hopes of every personality intersect and finally violently knot - generating a twisting climax that leaves a few characters useless and others approximately to take pleasure in an excellent monetary windfall.
By turns violent and humorous, A SELF-MADE MONSTER is without doubt one of the most unique vampire novels ever released. It strips away the drained clichés and crimson prose of the vampire tale and replaces them with dead-on characterizations, a galloping plot, and a brand new belief of the vampire itself.
