For those of you who don’t know Anne Rice, she is best known as the author of The Vampire Chronicles including Interview with the Vampire, which was translated into a movie some time back, starring Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Christian Slater. She’s a great writer.
A few years back (I don’t really know how long ago) she became a Christian, a Catholic in particular. But recently she has announced that she has quit Christianity.
This is a great interview (only just over four minutes) where she explains a little more about why she quit Christianity and what she means by that. She also briefly explains her new work focused on angels. I found it interesting, especially since I am a writer myself and a Christian.

One thought on “Anne Rice Interview: Why She Quit Christianity”
Hmmm… I read Interview with the vampire and gritted my teeth and struggled determinedly right through to the last page, just so that I could say that I had. I found it excuciatingly boring. Dracula, on the other hand, I have read several times, and enjoyed it each time.
