Anne Rice discusses her latest novel, “Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis” along with her entire career as a novelist with host Richard Wolinsky. First of two parts; concludes Thursday on Bookwaves.
Anne Rice achieved success in 1976 with her novel “Interview with the Vampire,” which spawned a series of novels titled “The Vampire Chronicles” and became a world-wide phenomenon. Along the way, she also wrote several other novels including the Mayfair Witches trilogy, Cry to Heaven, a series of books under pseudonyms, and the screenplay for “Interview with the Vampire” was turned into a successful film starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt.
In 2014, after an eight-year hiatus, she returned to the main character in her Vampire Chronicles series, Lestat, and here talks about the second book in this new series. She also talks about her career, including a failed musical of Lestat and the four films made from her books.
The interview was recorded at Books Inc., Opera Plaza, in San Francisco on Dec. 2, 2016. The entire interview is also heard as a Radio Wolinsky podcast
