Anne Rice Fried by Touring Schedule


A lot has shifted with Anne Rice. Rice, who was once known exclusively for her gothic, vampiric tales has made that only one side of Rice. She is now in the midst of an ambitious four-volume project on the life of Jesus. The second of those volumes was published yesterday. Will she go on tour? No, because Anne's life is no Rice-cake walk:

"My health doesn't allow me to tour anymore," she said. "I'm a type one diabetic, and I did a tour in 2005 and it just about killed me. In years past I had a lot of contact with my readers right at the front gate. I knew who they were and I saw them. It was a lot of fun and I miss that contact. But I think those days of great big signings are gone."
It's a shame for Anne, but diabetes is stuck to her like white on Rice.
