Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here are the confessions of a vampire. Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly erotic, this is a novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force — a story of danger and flight, of love and loss, of suspense and resolution, and of the extraordinary power of the senses.

It is a novel only Anne Rice could write....

Review:

"Rice turned the vampire genre on its ear with this first novel, which evolved into one of the most popular series in recent history. Though the quality of the books has declined, [Interview With the Vampire] nonetheless is a marvelous, innovative, and literate tale of the longing for love and the search for redemption." Library Journal

Review:

"The publicity tells us Rice is a 'dazzling storyteller.' But there is no story here, only a series of sometimes effective but always essentially static tableaus out of Roger Corman films, and some self-conscious soliloquizing out of Spider-Man comics, all wrapped in a ballooning, pompous language." Leo Braudy, The New York Times Book Review (May, 1976)

Synopsis:

Anne Rice is the author of thirty-two books. She lives in Palm Desert, California.

From the Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

In a remote room in a large city, a young reporter sits face-to-face with his most astonishing subject: a onetime New Orleans gentleman plantation owner who, in vividly terrifying and haunting detail, recalls his centuries of extraordinary life--beginning with his initiation into the ranks of the living dead at the hands of the sinister, sensual vampire Lestat.

About the Author

Anne Rice was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. She holds a Master of Arts Degree in creative writing from San Francisco State University and is the author of twenty-one novels. Her first novel, Interview with the Vampire, was published in 1976 and has gone on to become one of the bestselling novels of all time. It was in Interview with the Vampire that Rice first introduced the Vampire Lestat to the world.

Rice continued her vampire saga in The Vampire Lestat, The Queen of the Damned, The Tale of the Body Thief, and Memnoch the Devil. These novels, collectively known as "The Vampire Chronicles," have great mainstream and cult followings and are widely assigned in high school and collegiate English and philosophy classes. Her latest novel, Vittorio The Vampire, follows Pandora and The Vampire Armand, continuing Rice's new series of vampire tales. Rice is also the author of The Witching Hour, the first book in a trilogy about a clan of witches (the other novels in this series are Lasher and Taltos). Her other works of fiction include The Feast of All Saints, Cry to Heaven, and The Mummy; the contemporary erotic novels Exit to Eden and Belinda (written under the name Anne Rampling); and stylized, pornographic novels known as "The Beauty Books," which include The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, Beauty's Punishment, and Beauty's Release (written under the name A.N. Roquelaure). Her books have sold over 100,000,000 copies worldwide.

Rice wrote the screenplay for Interview with the Vampire and has also written a screenplay for The Witching Hour.

Rice lives in New Orleans with her husband, poet and painter Stan Rice, and son Christopher.
