Praise

“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


From the Paperback edition.

Author Essay

It seems amazing to me that I didn’t get around to reading this book until years after it had been first published, especially because I’m a big vampire fan.  I was working in a bookstore and finally picked it up…and couldn’t put it down until I’d finished it.  Interview is one of those books that stays with you long after you’ve read it.  I still have moments were something will remind me of it and I’ll sit there thinking about a particular scene or character.  It was only a few months after reading this, and tearing through the sequel, as well, that I went to work for Ballantine and got the chance to sell Anne Rice’s books as well as read them. I guess it was fate.
