A Novel of Love and the Modern Vampire
A novel by Ulysses G Dietz
Although Desmond Beckwith is a financial wizard with an international investment empire, a circle of supportive friends, and an elegant New York town house, he feels isolated and cut off from humankind. With good reason: Desmond is a 250-year-old vampire. For two centuries he has lived in New York, looking vainly for love and seeking to satisfy his twin thirsts for the blood and sex of mortal men. Into Desmond's lonely life stumbles Tony Chapman, an unemployed museum curator, down on his luck and one step away from being out on the streets. Tony turns Desmond's protected little world on its head and unlocks pieces of Desmond's past lives and loves that were deeply buried in memory. Desmond may be immortal, but he is not inhuman, and he must find a way to come to grips with his eternal life that includes both his human lover and his acceptance of who - and what - he himself is.
