Anne Rice (Twayne’s United States Authors) by Bette B. Roberts

“Roberts (English, Westfield State College) traces the history of Gothic fiction and places Rice in the rich tradition of writers of the genre, discussing Rice’s use of the supernatural to explore realms of human experience. Roberts analyzes Rice’s Gothic fiction, historical novels, and erotica, and cites the influence of Rice’s life on her writing, especially her Catholic girlhood, her marriage, and the loss of her daughter. Includes a plot synopsis for each of Rice’s novels through The Tale of the Body Thief.” (Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.)
