What was it like to be Jesus, to be both true man and true God? It might seem like an impossible question to answer but Anne Rice makes a creditable attempt to answer it in her novels Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt (dealing with Our Lord as a child) and Christ the Lord: the Road to Cana (where he is a young man living in Nazareth). And if the name Anne Rice rings a bell, she first came to notice as the author of a cycle of novels about vampires, most famously Interview with the Vampire . But now she has returned to the Faith, and these novels, with one more to come, are among the fruits of that conversion.
