Now that the movie version of Interview With the Vampire (which stars Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and other unmonstrous-looking types) is about to swoop into a theater near you, the novel is, predictably, taking off. This week, the 18-year-old tome (which dates its resurgence to last year, when news of the film hit) levitated from 12th to 4th place on the paperback best-seller chart — no doubt to the delighted cackles of author Anne Rice. The writer once attacked the film’s casting of Cruise, but after seeing the finished product, has declared herself a convert — or is that a cohort?
