Interview with the Vampire
NY, Knopf, 1996. The limited reissue "Twentieth Anniversary Edition" of her acclaimed first book, the first in the Vampire Lestat series, and one of the unlikeliest success stories of the publishing season. Modest hardcover sales of the book would not have led one to imagine the long-term popularity and success of Rice's later books in the Vampire Lestat series, nor did they predict the huge success this novel had in paperback, selling millions of copies. Even so, Rice's novels did not begin to approach such sales again until her next vampire novel, published after two mainstream historical novels. Rice's vampire novels are unprecedented bestsellers as well as being critically acclaimed, and even her erotic novels of sado-masochism have achieved a kind of mainstream success that defies prediction. Fine in a fine dust jacket and publisher's slipcase. Signed by the author. [#009482] $100
