The prose here is rich and inventive, the atmosphere and scene-setting handled with real aplomb' - News International It's a hot August morning in 1963. All over the rural town of Grandville, tacked to power poles and trees, taped to store windows, flyers have appeared announcing the one-night-only performance of The Travelling Vampire Show.
