Description - Diary of a Blood Donor by Mati Unt
In this contemporary retelling of Bram Stoker's Dracula, Estonian writer Mati Unt offers a playful yet unsettling mixture of fact and fiction, combining pieces of Estonian political history--in particular the figure of Lydia Koidula (1843-1886), widely regarded as the first Estonian woman to express an Estonian longing for independence--with portraits of life in contemporary Estonia, all set against a backdrop of vampirism and the Gothic novel.
