Overview

Anne Rice, the literary phenomenon of the late 20th century, speaks.


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 that publication, Anne Rice has become one of the world's bestselling authors and 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, remains an endlessly fascinating topic.

Now, for the first time ever in an audio format, Anne Rice discusses — with her longtime friend, Michael Riley — everything from her latest novels to her relationship to some of her characters; from the relationship of movies and music to her work to issues about gender, eroticism, religion, personal freedom, adolescent sexuality, and more...

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Designed for fans of best-selling author Rice (e.g., Servant of the Bones, Audio Reviews, LJ 10/15/96), this interview shows how she emerged from high school determined not to get married unless she could complete her education and achieve creative freedom. Responding to interviewer Riley's questions, Rice discusses how her religious background influenced her workwhich she describes as a spiritual quest. In fact, the ghosts she often writes about are memories from the past, she claims, that have come back to haunt her. She credits vampires with helping to solve her own youthful gender dilemma because they represent the true spirit of sexual freedom; they're sensuous rather than sexualtrue to feelings unfettered by convention or creed. Moreover, she explains the role research plays in her work, her thoughts on creative freedom, her future plans, and present lifestyle. An important interview for Rice fans, this audio exclusive belongs in libraries that have a strong Rice collection.James Dudley, Copiague, N.Y.
