Anne Rice

Anne Rice is the author of Interview with the Vampire and other books.

From her interview with Anna Metcalfe for the Financial Times:

What books changed your life?

Great Expectations by Dickens and Jane Eyre by Brontë had a profound influence. I’m not sure any book has ever changed my life.

What is the strangest thing you’ve ever done in the name of research?

Going to the morgue in New Orleans to look at dead bodies, a very illuminating and humbling experience. I saw several bodies and will never forget it. I described it later in one of my novels.

Where is your favourite place in the world?

The Garden District of New Orleans.
