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. The tale is a testament to the power of a child's imagination and religion's influence on an impressionable mind.
