If There Were Demons Then Perhaps There Were Angels

If There Were Demons Then Perhaps There Were Angels

(1978)
William Peter Blatty's Own Story of the Exorcist
A non fiction book by

 
An authorized account of how William Peter Blatty came to write both the novel and the screenplay of "The Exorcist". Excited by an article he read as a student, Blatty describes the work he put into researching his novel and the frustractions he encountered in turning the book into the screenplay. Blatty's fascination with the subject was born out of an interest in showing that the existence of God, in contemporary America, could be proved, as he says, "If there were demons, then perhaps there were angels and probably God and a life everlasting". His research eventually led him to tracking down priests who had participated in actual exorcisms. In doing so, Batty gathered enough evidence to write a novel that incorporated many of his factual findings. Fully annotated with footnotes, this book puts "The Exorcist" into context, from the inception of the novel to the hiring of William Friedkin as Director.
