A stunning departure—and compelling return. From Anne Rice, perennial best-selling author and inventor of the modern vampire genre, comes a chilling, hypnotic new novel. Be among the first to hear the author of "Interview with the Vampire" on her next classic, "Prince Lestat: The Vampire Chronicles." Victoria Wilson, Rice’s longtime editor, joins her for a conversation.

I wish Anne Rice would do a biography on her husband Stan. Anne intrigued me enough to start writing around the age of 15 (after reading Interview with the Vampire), and Stan Rice inspired me to publish my poetry after I discovered some of his poems in her novels.
I wish someone could pen a good bio movie on Anne Rice and have it showcase her eloquent and sophisticated style of writing, passion for New Orleans, and what went into her childhood to give us this graceful and intriguing woman. <3
i love that women. Realy she made me love books! I love Vampires and Anne's Vampires are the best of em all. Lestat is a Hero for me and friends but i allways had a heart for Louis. I want him to become realy slow over many many years to become one of the strongest. And i need to tell - Interview with a Vampire was a movie i watched with a good friend of mine (18 years old like me back in the german military)
He was a realy good guy and allways read steven king. His loved father died short before he needed tot join the german army. He was reading Insomnia (Steven King).
After the movie . . . like 1 week later he droving home with my car (i allway gave it to him because he was a super guy)
he drove at night after we have seen some horror movie with other soldiers.
Next day he was dead. Hung himself so his mother lost her husband and her son in 3 weeks.
I love Anne Rice!I've read every single book of her's and was anticipating the next Vampire Chronicle and didn't realize she had written Prince Lestat until watching this interview!!! I can't wait to read it !!!!Thanks for posting!!LOVE YOU ANNE RICE!!!!!!!!
I don't think that there is a more well-known author that can reach all types of audiences like Anne Rice. I've been a fan for 15 years and continue to enjoy everything she puts out. I am happy to see that she's visiting the VC again.
I love this woman with all my heart. She's not only my favorite author, but also one of my favorite minds and hearts of the whole world. Her sensibility is so contagious and inspiring. Her intelligence is brilliant. Her mind is so astonishingly opened - we all have so much to learn from someone like her... I got really touched when she talked about Cry to Heaven book, that is the book of my life. And when she talked about the gender question.
We have to be thankful: we have a writer like her in this world. I believe it's a blessing.
