Off-Ramp | Off-Ramp host John Rabe and contributors share thoughts on arts, culture, and life in L.A.

Rabe interviews R.H. Greene, author of "Incarnadine," new Dracula memoir. Full audio posted.

I’ve just posted a long interview with R.H. Greene, who has just written a wonderful, engrossing memoir of an easily villainized literary figure. It’s “Incarnadine: the True Memoirs of Count Dracula,” and I couldn’t put it down. It’s the inside story on Dracula, offering a sophisticated, nuanced explanation for the various parts of the Dracula myth, like why he needs to sleep in his home soil, why oak stakes go through him, and why he's so damn angry.

We’ll be running a shorter version of the interview on the Halloween edition of Off-Ramp, but I thought you’d like a sneak preview.

Then, at 4pm on November 15th, Greene is at Book Soup for a reading and signing: 8818 W Sunset Blvd 90069-2125.
