Undead author not dead

Overheard at The Strand:

Blonde[-haired woman]: I hate Anne Rice.
Brunette: Me too! Isn’t she dead?
Blonde: Oh God, no! Remember, she’s writing that Jesus novel?
Brunette: Oh right. For some reason I always think she’s dead.

(Periodically, Rice holds court on her relatively liberal politics and her religious convictions at her website.)
