Publisher Comments:

“An experience you will never forget.”
—St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The Exorcist is as superior to most books of its kind as an Einstein equation is to an accountants column of figures.”
—New York Times Book Review

Four decades after it first terrified the world, William Peter Blattys The Exorcist is back! An extraordinary classic work of horror and dark paranormal suspense—widely considered one of the most frightening novels ever written—Blattys masterpiece of unrelenting chills was the basis for the acclaimed Academy Award-nominated motion picture directed by William Friedkin and starring Ellen Burstyn and Max Von Sydow. Rediscover the power of The Exorcist in this stunning 40th Anniversary Edition, as a desperate mother and two priests fight to free the soul of a little girl from a supernatural entity of pure malevolence.

Raw and profane, shocking and blood-chilling, it remains a modern parable of good and evil and perhaps the most terrifying novel ever written.
