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'.Hide synopsis

White paper binding with black lettering and picture of author on front cover. The copy of the New York playwright Ron Whyte with his ownership stamp on the verso of the front cover. Good only. Whyte used this as a working copy (perhaps he acquired it in 1976) with some marginal lines and some notes on the final blank pages in his usual red pen. The front cover was detached and he put on scotch tape pieces to hold it. Author and title are written on the spine in blue pen (not in Whyte s hand). Whyte was a writer who was interested in the effects of horror and the grotesque. His best known work is Disability: A Comedy.

That said, still well-written.
This book will absolutely suck you in and you'll never want to put it down (except to read the other books in the series). Anne Rice's amazing use of detail paints a perfect picture in your mind and its like your actually there. You'll fall in love with the handsome vampire Louis as he tells his "life ...

There are some points where Anne goes into so much detail that it becomes a little bit of a dry read, but those details are essential to this intricate ...
