A Dick Staub conversation with Anne Rice. You can't judge a book by its cover goes the old adage. After years of interviewing culturally influential authors I would add, neither can you always judge the author by the book. Who knew Margaret Atwood, author of "The Handmaid's Tale (Everyman's Library)," would tell me (off-the-air) of her insistence on attending Sunday School as a child, though her scientist parent's were both atheists? Who knew feminist Susan Faludi would take the time to sit in on a Promise Keepers meeting and then defend the movement to her less informed cadre of friends, having concluded, "what can be so bad about a group of men who want to be better husbands and fathers?" Who knew the real story behind Anne Rice's "Interview with the Vampire?" You will after listening to this amazing conversation.
