The tale of The Wolf Gift continues . . .In Anne Rices surprising and compelling best-selling novel, the first of her strange and mythic imagining of the world of wolfen powers (I devoured these pages . . . As solid and engaging as anything she has written since her early Vampire Chronicles fictionAlan Cheuse, The Boston Globe; A delectable cocktail of old-fashioned lost-race adventure, shape-shifting, and suspenseElizabeth Hand, The Washington Post), readers were spellbound as Rice conjured up a daring new world set against the wild and beckoning California coast.Now in her new novel, as lush and romantic in detail and atmosphere as it is sleek and steely in storytelling, Anne Rice takes us once again to the rugged coastline of Northern California, to the grand mansion at Nideck Point, and further explores the unearthly education of her transformed Man Wolf.The novel opens on a cold, gray landscape. It is the beginning of December. Oak fires are burning in the stately flickering hearths of Nideck Point. It is Yuletide. For Reuben Golding, now infused with the Wolf Gift and under the loving tutelage of the Morphenkinder, this promises to be a Christmas like no other . . . The Yuletide season, sacred to much of the human race, has been equally sacred to the Man Wolves, and Reuben soon becomes aware that they, too, steeped in their own profound rituals, will celebrate the ancient Midwinter festival deep within the verdant richness of Nideck forest.From out of the shadows of Nideck comes a ghosttormented, imploring, unable to speak yet able to embrace and desire with desperate affection . . . As Reuben finds himself caught up withand drawn tothe passions and yearnings of this spectral presence, and as the swirl of preparations reaches a fever pitch for the Nideck town Christmas festival of music and pageantry, astonishing secrets are revealed; secrets that tell of a strange netherworld, of spirits other than the Morphenkinder, centuries old, who inhabit the dense stretches of redwood and oak that surround the magnificent house at Nideck Point, ageless ones who possess their own fantastical ancient histories and who taunt with their dark magical powers . . .

In the midst of a deep, self-destructive depression, addicted to heroin and prescription drugs, he lashed out at everyone around him from his fellow cast members on The Howard Stern Show, to celebrity guests, his longtime friends, and even his own family.By turns dark and disturbing, hilarious and heartbreaking, and always drop-dead honest, Crash and Burn lifts the curtain on Arties dangerous slide, and offers a new, crystal-clear window into the mind of the addict. For the first time, Artie reveals all the full truth behind his now legendary Stern Show meltdown, his suicide attempt (which he relates in terrifying detail), surprising stints in rehab, and painful relapses. With the help and support of friends and family, Artie claws his way back, turning his life and career around. And despite his slipups, backslides, and permanent losses, Artie forges on. With Crash and Burn, Artie Lange goes all-in, confessing a story that is as shocking as it is funny, ever tempered by his characteristic humor, self-awareness, and inimitable way with words.
