This book is a hilarious response to Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles. Where Rice's New Orleans is beautiful and captivating, our hero lives in a dying neighborhood surrounded by crack dealers and roving packs of ghetto mutts. Instead of gorgeous vampires, we get Jules Duchon -- a morbidly obese jazz-loving vampire living in his (deceased) mother's basement. The story is painfully funny, as you watch Jules bungle from one problem to another -- how does a fat man catch a healthy man for dinner? This is the afterlife that Murphy's Law has in store for all Anne Rice fans.
