An Interesting Conversion of Events May 8, 2006 | 10:21 am

Anne Rice is a Born Again.

I still can’t quite wrap my head around that sentence, but it’s apparently true. Somewhere along the line, I’ve missed the memo for about a year, but…HUH?!? Anne Rice is a whazzah? Whoozah?

“I promised,” she says, “that from now on I would write only for the Lord.”

Whoa. Keanu Reaves couldn’t have put it better.

This odd little fact comes to you courtesy of the Boar’s Head Tavern, and Wikipedia and Newsweek are both down on this, too.

Check the Boar’s Head Tavern post (cited above) for an interesting discussion about her author’s notes, which discuss her conversion experience. It’s an interesting read, and I’ll be going out to grab the book, if only for my own morbid curiosity.
