A cornerstone of the vampire genre, Rice’s stunningly accomplished spine-chiller finds a tormented vampire recounting his tragic, immortal existence. Character driven and emotionally intelligent, Interview with the Vampire elevated the vampire story to literary credibility whilst retaining the gothic thrills and melodrama so beloved of the form.
'A spine-chilling nightmare... highly accomplished... an impressive feat of imagination' - The Sunday Times
In a darkened room a young man sits telling the macabre and eerie story of his life - the story of a vampire, gifted with eternal life, cursed with an exquisite craving for human blood.
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'.
