A reporter interviewing a man who claims to be a 200-year-old vampire, Louis. Louis's story begins at 18th-century New Orleans with his first encounters with the charismatic and decadent vampire Lestat. Lestat converts Louis to blood-sucking and immortality, but Louis fails to adopt Lestat's cavalier attitude, instead tormenting himself with guilt over his new nature. The two vampires remain deeply, if reluctantly, connected over the years, while becoming intimately involved with others of their kind, including Claudia, a mature immortal in a young child's body.
