Lestat the interviewer  
This community could use some fresh blood. Pun intended.

I always imagine how Lestat might have interviewed the other vamps. Did they give in willingly? Did he have to bribe them? What bargains were made if any, and what sensitive information had to be excluded? Did he have them write down a memoir and hand it to him for editing? Or did he sit down and have them regurgitate their thoughts in a stream of consciousness format, mentally bookmark what he found noteworthy and fashion it into a novel?

I'm re-reading parts of Pandora here and there, and I noted that she describes how David came forward to interview her. The thoughts going through his head and hers. Too bad Mater hadn't included this in any of the main VC novels (at least not that I recall...)

it's possible that Baby Jenks is a fictional 'generic young fledgling character' invented by Lestat to put a bit of sex, drugs and urban grit among all those pompous philosophy-reading dusty vamps...

Could be. I'm just confused by the fact that Laurent shows up out of the blue, it doesn't seem to have a point if Lestat just made it up.
