Editorial Reviews


If they gave out gold medals for books, Dracula is Dead would get one. It s a fascinating, long overdue, and timely look at Romania, giving readers an unparalleled view of my country s many, many layers. 
--Nadia Comeneci, Olympic champion and gymnastics coach

What a great read! With the eye of the journalist and the ear of the politician, Sheilah Kast and Jim Rosapepe make their Romanian experience so absorbing that you'll want to jump on the next plane to go see for yourself. But I refuse to believe that Dracula is really dead. 
--Cokie Roberts, author, syndicated columnist and senior political analyst for ABC News and NPR

You don't have to be Italian-American to understand why Sheilah and Jim call Romania the New Italy: Latin language, dazzling creativity, roots in the Roman Empire. They show you the Romania you don't know, the place you'll want to visit. 
--Bill Novelli, former CEO, AARP
