RIP Anne Rice Dead At 80 Years Old, Ryan Field Books

 RIP Anne Rice Dead At 80 Years Old

I was stunned yesterday when I read that Anne Rice passed away suddenly from a stroke. I don’t think of 80 as being that old nowadays.

Anne Rice was pivotal with her gothic stories, but she was also one of the first mainstream authors I ever read who incorporated the concept of “gay” into her characters. She didn’t write gay stories and she didn’t write about gay men. She wrote slightly homoerotic content and she never once appropriated gay men. She also was known for her stories of erotica. I’ve read them and loved them. They’re very different. 

This is from the NYT.

Born in New Orleans on Oct. 4, 1941, Ms. Rice was most widely known for the novel series “The Vampire Chronicles,” the first of which was “Interview With the Vampire,” published in 1976. It was adapted into a movie starring Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Kirsten Dunst and Antonio Banderas.

Here’s more. What I always found really interesting was that her book, Interview with the Vampire, was pubbed in 1976 but really didn’t become wildly popular until the 80s. At least that’s how I remember it.
