Running From the Devil
A Memoir of A Boy PossessedeBook - 2003
What's a kid to do when recurring hallucinations lead him to believe that he?s possessed by the devil? In the case of one boy with an over-active imagination and a Catholic parochial school upbringing, you don?t tell a single soul for fear of being ridiculed, sent away for treatment, or perhaps even burned at the stake. Instead, you wage a private holy war against Satan. Based on an award-winning feature story, Running from the Devil is Steve Kissing's poignant, yet humorous, memoir about the remarkable steps he took to hide his condition--later discovered to be epilepsy1and exorcise his demons.
