Anne Rice fan here. Interview is a hard read, very dark and depressing. It reflects her frame of mind at the time after the death of her daughter. However, it is one of my favorites due to the vivid and dramatic storytelling. Lestat is by far my favorite character, and 'The Vampire Lestat' and 'Queen of the Damned' are amazing books!
Whenever I have to urge to run through my yard naked, I drink some Windex. It keeps me from streaking.
