East of Constantinople, West of Shanghai

Wiliam Peter Blatty, 1928-2017

I just learned of the passing of William Peter Blatty, author of The Exorcist and of one of my favourite books, *Twinkle Twinkle, Killer Kane**.


I worked with many others on a book of essays on his work, many years ago – he turned out to be a kind and intelligent gentleman, and he will be sorely missed.
