"Hendrix has masterfully blended the disaffected housewife trope with a terrifying vampire tale, and the anxiety and tension are palpable...A cheeky, spot-on pick for book clubs."-- "Booklist (starred review)"
"Every vampire novel is going to have blood and teeth, but this one's got that one essential ingredient that nobody else does like Grady Hendrix: heart. These aren't characters, they're people."-- "Stephen Graham Jones, author of The Only Good Indians"
"[Hendrix's] best book yet. Fans of smart horror will sink their teeth into this one."-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"
"Grady Hendrix has cemented his place as a literary luminary...Cancel your plans and lock your doors-you won't be able to stop reading this one until the very end."-- "Sarah Gailey, Hugo Award-winning author of Magic for Liars"
"The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires is funny and warm and it's genuinely creepy and disturbing. Grady recreates a time and place without the dangerous, distortive lens of nostalgia."-- "Paul Tremblay, author of The Cabin at the End of the World"
[A] clever, addictive vampire thriller...[with] perfectly-pitched allusions to classic horror novels and true crime accounts. This powerful, eclectic novel both pays homage to the literary vampire canon and stands singularly within it."-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
"This genre-bending vampire story helps cement horror as a frontier for feminist storytelling."-- "BookPage"
"A vampire's hunger for blood may be insatiable, but this masterpiece novel ladles out ample thrills, chills, and relevant examples of sociopolitical injustices to satisfy any literary appetite."-- "Foreword Reviews"
