The Devastating
Death Of
Anne Rice
Anne Rice, who passed away on December 11th, 2021 due to complications from a stroke, will be missed but her colossal body of work has permanently impacted the landscape of contemporary literature. Primarily known for books that blend gothic horror, romance, and fantasy, her career spans nearly 50 years, and her oeuvre contains more than 30 novels.
So vivid and complex were Rice's novels that it should come as no surprise that more than one was tapped for a live-action film adaptation. The book "Interview with the Vampire" kicked off her career in the literary world, and it helped Rice achieve notoriety in larger pop culture circles when she penned the screenplay for a big-screen adaptation nearly 20 years later.
Several of her other novels including "Exit to Eden" and "The Queen of the Damned" made their way to the big screen. AMC recently debuted its TV treatment of “Interview with a Vampire” and the series “Lives of Mayfair Witches” based on her trilogy of novels will premiere on Jan. 5, 2023.
