Interview With the VampireeBook - 2010
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.
Praise for Interview with the Vampire
"A magnificent, compulsively readable thriller . . . Rice begins where Bram Stoker and the Hollywood versions leave off and penetrates directly to the true fascination of the myth-the education of the vampire."-- Chicago Tribune
"Unrelentingly erotic . . . sometimes beautiful, and always unforgettable."-- Washington Post
"If you surrender and go with her . . . you have surrendered to enchantment, as in a voluptuous dream."-- Boston Globe
"A chilling, thought-provoking tale, beautifully frightening, sensuous, and utterly unnerving." -- Hartford Courant

Anne Rice's debut gothic novel about 200 year-old vampire Louis de Pointe du Lac, who reveals his life to a reporter, spawned a movie adaptation with Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise.
Anne Rice's true name, Howard Allen Frances O'Brien, sound more pen than her pen name. Rice has also written under the names A.N. Roquelaure and Anne Rampling.
In the first Vampire Chronicles, we learn how 18th-century Louisiana plantation owner Louis de Pointe du lac became a vampire as told to a young boy.
