Just ugh. So you don't have to follow the link, it is what appears to be Anne Rice herself and certainly sounds like her, arguing with the regular folks who reviewed her book. She says things like "You are projecting your own limitations on it. And you are giving a whole new meaning to the words "wide readership." And you have strained my Dickensean principles to the max." Could that combination of snottiness, big words used in a questionable way and bad eighties slang be anyone else?
There are many things I hate about Anne Rice actually arguing with the Amazon reviewers of her book. Not the least of these things is that Rice's address is apparently now California. After all the crap she put the people of New Orleans through (while I lived there, she staged a Jazz Funeral with herself as the corpse to promote one of her books. Tacky.) the least she could have done was stay and rebuild. (According to this link, she sold her beautiful historic house to a condo developer.)
I need a shower.
Ps. For new Chalicesseurs, Nora Ephron is the hated enemy of the Chaliceblog.
Because she stole the plot from Shadow of the Vampire to make that stupid Bewitched movie,
Because she managed to sound like she's name dropping even when talking about her own ex-husband.
And, well, she sucks.
