In 2005, Anne Rice startled her readers with her novel Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt, and revealing
that, after years as an atheist, she had returned to her Catholic faith.
And now, in her powerful memoir, Rice tells the story of the
spiritual transformation that produced a complete change in her literary goals.
She begins with her girlhood in New Orleans as the devout child in a deeply
religious family. She writes about her years in Berkeley, where her career as a
novelist began with the publication of Interview
with the Vampire. She writes about loss and tragedy (her mother’s drinking,
the death of her daughter and, later, her beloved husband); about new joys;
about the birth of her son. She tells how after an adult lifetime of
questioning, she experienced the intense conversion and consecration to Christ
that lie behind her most recent novels. Download and start listening now!
