That an author would return to a character left behind for more than 25 years and continue writing his story wouldn’t be half as tantalizing if that character weren’t the vampire Lestat. Anne Rice appears in conversation with son, Christopher, discussing the writing life and her new novel, Prince Lestat: The Vampire Chronicles. Some possible topics of conversation: what she thinks of the new pope; if that CSI: New Orleans show is any good; and who’s held up better: Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise? The smart money’s on Pitt: He still builds houses for poor people in New Orleans.
