Interview with the Vampire Spread

On This Day

Anne Rice wrote Interview with the Vampire in only five weeks, shortly after the devastating death of her five-year-old daughter.

On this day in 1976, Anne Rice published Interview with the Vampire, innovative as the first gothic novel displaying sympathetic supernatural creatures. Her monsters were philosophical, lonely, and experienced moral conflict. It was a far cry from previous gothic novels that contained frightening supernatural creatures.
