Called Out of Darkness by Anne Rice

Book Description

Internationally bestselling author, Anne Rice, has written twenty-eight novels - magnificent tales of other worldly beings that explore the realms of good and evil, love and alienation: each a reflection of her own moral journey. Now, in her powerful memoir, she writes about her own life as a Catholic. Beginning with her New Orleans childhood, in a vividly experienced world of storytelling and ritual, Rice's faith was formed. As a teenager, struggling to reconcile her faith with her hunger for knowledge and understanding of the modern world, she turned her back to the religion of her childhood and lost her belief in God. Years later, after the tragic passing of her daughter, she wrote Interview with the Vampire, a lament for her lost faith. Rice describes a turning point in 1998, when, after nearly four decades as an atheist, she returned to the religion of her childhood. Hers is a faith that has survived even her husband's death and the divisive nature of contemporary religious debate. This is her spiritual confession.
