Bram Stoker Centenary Celebrations

Play

PAUL MURRAY, Biographer of Bram Stoker talks to NOEL McGUINNESS about Bram Stokers Centenary.

Paul was commissioned to write a biography of Stoker in the 1990s.

There were many surprises uncovered in the research for the novel. Stoker was an important figure in Dublin in his day and is, oddly, more celebrated abroad than at home as a major figure in popular culture.

It’s worth noting perhaps, that Stoker’s first book was a manual for civil servants!
