There were some comments after my favorable review of Anne Rice’s Out of Egypt. Some were negative, but others speculated that Anne Rice was going to write another vampire novel.
Anne Rice Update
April 5, 2008 by 3 Comments
My blog review got a mention on Anne Rice’s website, and I’ve now been asked to interview Anne Rice for an article in St Austin Review.
By the way, the Anne Rice website assures us that Mrs Rice is not going to write another vampire novel after all, and she has no plans to write a novel about Lestat being redeemed.
I personally thought it was kind of a corny idea anyway. The only way it could have been done well would either to make it totally understated and suggested, or to go the whole hog and do a kind of Flannery O’Connor treatment and make Lestat into a fire breathing, sweating, screaming, weeping televangelist with a big budget and big hair.
