Reviews of Anne Rice’s ‘Prince Lestat,’ and More –

” “What a dashing and beautiful figure Lestat was,” an elderly vampire moons at a pivotal moment in Anne Rice’s PRINCE LESTAT (Knopf, $28.95), succinctly stating the novel’s theme. The natty vamp Lestat de Lioncourt — decked out for this occasion, a kind of worldwide blood-drinkers summit, “in a fresh and showstopping ensemble of Ralph Lauren wool plaids and pastel linen and silk” — was present at the creation of Rice’s long-running Vampire Chronicles series, which began with “Interview With the Vampire” in 1976. Brooding furiously, he dominated that book, commanding it as effortlessly as he does the attention of his fellow vampires in this latest installment.”
