Anne Rice has put up a glowing review of Frank Ryan's book, The Mystery of Metamorphosis" on her Facebook page.
Anne Rice, renowned US novelist, best known for her amazing Vampire Chronicles series, clearly loves Frank Ryan's book, The Mystery of Metamorphosis. Here's what she has to say:
"Let me share with you the book I'm reading today: The Mystery of Metamorphosis by Frank Ryan. In Ryan, I've found another brilliant science writer, like Nick Lane, who makes available to the scientifically challenged some insight into the magnificence and mysteries of biological life on this planet. This is just a wonderful book. If you have, as I do, a million questions about how catepillars become butterflies, and no science vocabulary to study it, well, this may be the book for you. This is beautifully written. A gem of a book."
Since the review, Frank wrote to Anne to thank her and they had a very interesting and friendly conversation about writing and the inspiration that makes each of them write.
