Interview with the Vampire

by Anne Rice

In a darkened room a young man sits telling the macabre and eerie story of his life – the story of a vampire, gifted with eternal life, cursed with an exquisite craving for human blood.

Anne Rice’s compulsively readable novel is arguably the most celebrated work of vampire fiction since Bram Stoker’s Dracula was published in 1897. As the Washington Post said on its first publication, it is a ‘thrilling, strikingly original work of the imagination . . . sometimes horrible, sometimes beautiful, always unforgettable’.

“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
