Nuance Spotlight: Anne Rice
Here are a couple of Notes on Nuance moves we've learned in the past. Each appears in the novels of Anne Rice
, who is one of the most popular authors of gothic fiction—or indeed any fiction—of all time.
"Let Alone" (April 2020 Issue)
"From me she had learned the value of money, but from Lestat she had inherited a passion for spending it; and she wasn't to leave without the most luxurious black coach we could manage, outfitted with leather seats that might have accommodated a band of travellers, let alone a man and a child who used the magnificent compartment only for the transportation of an ornately carved oak chest."
—Anne Rice, Interview with the Vampire (1976)
"If Not" (June 2019 Issue)
"The Vampire Lestat waited: there would be a finish if not an answer, not unlike the promise of death itself."
—Anne Rice, The Queen of the Damned (1976)
