Out of Darkness: A Spiritual Confession, is not about Anne Rice's life as a writer; rather, it is about her life as a Catholic and the role of faith in her life. She was raised Catholic, then fell away and became an Atheist for 38 years before finding God and dedicating her life to Him again, through the Catholic church. It is an amazingly honest book, and her descriptions of New Orleans, of the Catholic Church, of her searching for God while insisting He doesn't exist, and the joy and intelledctual stimulus of her return to faith is gorgeously detailed.

I listened to it as an audiobook. It painted pictures it my mind (would probablty be even better if I were Catholic & could relate to the early descriptions more, but she made me see it). It made me think about my own relationship with God. It made me think period. That's what I call a good book.
