Millions of readers are aware of the widespread acclaim that has greeted the novels of Anne Rice, one of the most successful bestselling authors of contemporary fiction.

What a great insight into a great mind!
This book is extremely well organized and most definitely unique. I?ve read a lot of Anne Rice and read a lot about Anne Rice, but nothing to this extent. Ramsland invites the reader into Rice?s world through a wide variety of spectrums including stories, journals, biographies, articles, interviews and reviews. Ramsland reaches back into Rice?s early career and into sensitive topics that every Rice/Lestat/Vampire fan should know about but never wanted to ask.
