    To think of it, it s THE perfect novel to read on a rainy, rainy afternoon while sipping ultrahot but strong cappuccino at a posh Sanborn s in Mexico DF

    Rating 3.75 of fiveThe Publisher Says Where, Carlos Fuentes asks, is a modern day vampire to roost Why not Mexico City, populated by ten million blood sausages that is, people , and a police force who won t mind a few disappearances Vlad is Vlad the Impaler, of course, whose mythic cruelty was an inspiration for Bram Stoker s Dracula In this sly sequel, Vlad really is undead

    Ashamed to say that this is my first time reading a novel by Mexico s most celebrated author I ve read some of his essays Vlad is imbued with humor and horror, a commentary on contemporary life I was taken with the sensuality of Fuentes writing and can imagine it would be even better read in Spanish.
