Featured Acquisitions | Books from the library of Anne Rice

Douglas Stewart Fine Books

The association copies in this collection reflect American gothic fiction writer Anne Rice’s mid-2000s return to Catholicism, and are largely comprised of her annotated research materials for her fictionalised accounts of the life of Jesus, Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt and Christ the Lord: The Road to Cana.

This collection is not limited to her Christian studies, however, as subjects such as the occult and general fiction are also represented. These association copies present a unique insight into both her methods and thinking during this time.
