She describes how, as she grew up, she lost her belief in God, but not her desire for a meaningful life.pShe writes about her years in radical Berkeley, where her career as a novelist began with the publication of iInterview with the Vampirie, soon to be followed by more novels about otherworldly beings, about the realms of good and evil, love and alienation, pageantry and ritual, each reflecting aspects of her often agonizing moral quest.pShe writes about loss and tragedy (her mothers drinking; the death of her daughter and, later, her beloved husband, Stan Rice); about new joys; about the birth of her son, Christopher; about the familys return in 1988 to the city of New Orleans, the city that inspired so much of her work. She tells how after an adult lifetime of questioning, she experienced the intense conversion and consecration to Christ that lie behind her most recent novels.pFor her readers old and new, this book explores her continuing interior pilgrimage.
