Издание полностью на английском. It is more than a mere horror tale. This is the account of a man gifted with immortality who has lived 200 years as a vampire. In a darkened room, he tells the story of his life to a young journalist, for whom it is the story of a lifetime. He recounts how he departed from human existence and became a vampire, but reluctant to take human life, he sustained himself on the blood of animals. As the years pass, however, he embraces the habits of the vampire-the detachment, the hardened will, the sensual pleasure. He embarks on a perilous journey across Europe to search for others like himself, more desperate to find out why he has become what he is. At last he comes into intimacy with the most decadent society of vampires-an intimacy which becomes terror as he is compelled to confront what he fears most."
