“For those who have lost a loved one to that liar and fraud named Death.”
So reads the dedication of William Peter Blatty’s Finding Peter, a deeply moving memoir that tests the bounds of grief, love, and the soul. Blatty, the bestselling author and Oscar Award — winning screenwriter of The Exorcist, lived a charmed life among the elite stars of Hollywood.
His son Peter, born over a decade after The Exorcist, grew from an apple-cheeked boy into an “imposing young man with a quick, warm smile.” But when Peter died very suddenly from a rare disorder, Blatty’s world turned upside down.
As he and his wife struggled through their unrelenting grief, a series of strange and supernatural events began occurring — and Blatty became convinced that Peter was sending messages from the afterlife.
A true and unabashedly personal story, Finding Peter will shake the most cynical of readers — and it will remind those in grief that our loved ones do truly live on.
