Abstract

A Lasting Exorcism is a memoir about trying to find purity in alcoholism, drug abuse, fundamentalism, and egomania. This is a story about love grounding the spiritual quest and opening the self to the paradox of memory, how we engage with others as mirrors of ourselves to develop a compassionate understanding of the world.
