Abstract:

In the novel that introduced Anne Rice to the world, Interview with the Vampire, a reporter seeks out the facts behind an extraordinary life. In the years since, Anne Rice has created a remarkable and acclaimed body of work - encompassing her celebrated Vampire Chronicles, The Lives of the Mayfair Witches novels, two haunting historical epics, and her controversial, equally sought-after excursions into erotica.

One of the world's best known and biggest bestselling authors of contemporary fiction, Rice has herself been the subject of countless interviews, profiles, and a full-length biography. Yet who Anne Rice is, and the beliefs, fascinations, desires, fears, and passions that inspire her work, remain endlessly fascinating topics.

In this first-of-its-kind book-length interview with Anne Rice, film scholar and author Michael Riley seeks out - and finds - the truth behind the extraordinary life and work of a unique, tantalizing writer.

In Conversations with Anne Rice, the creator of Lestat, Louis, and Lasher talks in depth - and in her own words - about everything: from her early struggles toward publication to the tremendous literary reputation she has achieved. From the success and adulation of the vampire novels to the lesser-known books that are her personal favorites. From the influence of classical and popular literature to that of Catholicism and eroticism.

From the role of movies in her literary vision to her definitive critique of the film version of Interview with the Vampire, and far beyond.
