Interview with the Vampire is a gothic horror and vampire novel by American author Anne Rice, published in 1976. It was her debut novel. Based on a short story Rice wrote around 1968, the novel centers on vampire Louis de Pointe du Lac, who tells the story of his life to a reporter. Rice composed the novel shortly after the death of her young daughter Michelle, who served as an inspiration for the child-vampire character Claudia. Though initially the subject of mixed critical reception, the book was followed by a large number of widely popular sequels, collectively known as The Vampire Chronicles. A film adaptation was released in 1994, starring Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise, and the novel has been adapted as a comic three times.
ABOUT "INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE"
In Anne Rice's classic debut novel, Interview With The Vampire,
the 200 hundred year-old Louis Pointe du Lac tells how he became a
vampire. After a devastating personal loss, Louis sought solace first
in alcohol, then in the charismatic vampire Lestat's offer to join the
"undead". But the "dark gift" of immortality does not free Louis from
the grief and loneliness of living. While he has the power to satisfy
his appetites, he cannot escape them, nor can he deny responsibility
for his actions. A profound philosophical thriller, Interview With The
Vampire transformed the Vampire of Bram Stoker's novel and Hollywood's
movies into a myth for our age.
