About the Author

ANNE RICE is the author of thirty-seven books. She died in 2021.


"[A] very affecting story of a well-known prodigal's return. . . . Called Out of Darkness is the vivid, engaging tale of the journey of a soul into light." --Chicago Sun-Times

"Rice couples her writing talents with the zeal of a recent convert." --Christianity Today

"Rice could rival C.S. Lewis as a popular apologist for the faith." --Time

"Rice's memoir shows what true belief really involves. It exacts a price. James Agee had a lovely term for this. He called it 'cruel radiance.'" --Los Angeles Times

"Anne Rice is not a convert but a revert. . . . A loving reconstruction of the pre-Vatican II Church of the 1940s and 1950s. . . . [After] twenty-five years and twenty-one books . . . Rice entrusts both herself and the people she loves to God." --First Things

"Called Out of Darkness is rich in both poetic simplicity and liberating confessionals. This memoir is not to be missed." --East Bay Literary Examiner

"I am not a Christian and I normally don't read what I would call Christian books. They don't appeal to me, they don't interest me and I normally pass them by in the bookstore. . . . [But] I picked up [Called Out of Darkness] up this afternoon and it's beyond wonderful." --Jamieson Wolf

"As a long-time reader of Anne Rice's, the impetus she presents here makes me want to re-read many of her prior works. I highly recommend this book to anyone who seeks the inspiration and motivation behind the bestselling novels they've read."

"Nothing short of magnificent. . . . What a real blessing, what a vulnerable sharing." --Flos Carmeli

"A lovely, intelligent book." --PopMatters

"Even if you don't consider yourself to be a religious person--even if you are not a Christian--read this book. Anyone can appreciate the message contained in Called Out of Darkness. . . . It is a thinking person's approach to faith." --Edge (Provincetown, MA)
