If There Were Demons Then Perhaps There Were Angels: William Peter Blatty's Own Story of The Exorcist is the New York Times bestselling author's memoir on how he came to write his most famous novel and subsequent Academy Award-winning screenplay adaptation.

While a junior at the Jesuitical Georgetown University in Washington D.C. in 1949, Blatty read an article in the Washington Post about the exorcism of a young boy in Maryland. This chronicled ritual served as the inspiration for the book that became a phenomenon, a film, and a franchise.

Reviews from Goodreads

William Peter Blatty

William Peter Blatty (1928-2017), the writer of numerous novels and screenplays, is best known for his mega-bestselling novel The Exorcist, deemed by the New York Times Book Review to be "as superior to most books of its kind as an Einstein equation is to an accountant's column of figures." An Academy Award winner for his screenplay for The Exorcist, Blatty is not only the author of one of the most terrifying novels ever written, but, paradoxically, also cowrote the screenplay for the hilarious Inspector Clouseau film, A Shot in the Dark. New York Times reviewers of his early comic novels noted, "Nobody can write funnier lines than William Peter Blatty," describing him as "a gifted virtuoso who writes like S. J. Perelman."
