Tosca Lee Writes A Demon’s Memoir

Now THIS is a book I will most definitely read. The whole idea fascinates me and just rings of an updating or potential companion piece to The Screwtape Letters. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not comparing it to The Screwtape Letters or even mildly entertaining the idea that it could touch the “classicness” of that book but you really never know what the future could hold for a literary piece like this. It’s getting compliments from a few pretty heavy-hitters, like Ted Dekker and Eric Wilson. The book is entitled Demon: A Memoir and revolves around a man named “Clayton (who’s) life is stuck in the mud. His wife has been cheating on him for years, his literary career is uninspired, and his job as an editor is mediocre at best. But when he walks into a restaurant and finds a mysterious dark-haired stranger waiting for him, his life dramatically changes. The stranger claims to be Lucian, one of Lucifer’s fellow fallen angels, come to tell Clay his story of the angels’ dramatic fall from Heaven, Adam and Eve’s Eden, and Christ’s triumph on the cross – from a demon’s perspective. This seems just the thing to get Clay’s career jumpstarted, but it could mean his ultimate success or failure as Lucian’s story seems to become more and more like his own.” After the jump, you can check out what Ted Dekker, Eric Wilson, and one other person has said about the book. You can also see what the author Tosca Lee has to say about the book and read a little bio for her.

Endorsements:

“So few books rattle me to the core yet lift my hopes to the heavens in the same breath. Tosca Lee’s Demon: A Memoir is a rare find that must be read.”

Ted Dekker, New York Times best-selling author of the Circle Trilogy

“Wise, imaginative, funny and poetic, this is a book that lingers in memory after you’ve turned the last page.”

Sophy Burnham, New York Times best-selling author of A Book of Angels

“Fresh, yet older than time. Years from now, we may find other books being compared to this one.”

Eric Wilson, New York Times best-selling author of Fireproof

Author Bio and Statement:

“One day . . . I realized that being angelic and fallen was very similar to being human and fallen—except for one major difference: the provision of a messiah. I immediately wondered what it must feel like to be unquestionably damned—and worse, to watch humans luxuriate in and take for granted the grace made available to them from a doting God. And I thought: Why wouldn’t a fallen angelic creation resent a human recipient of God’s grace? And why wouldn’t a demon want to prove that creature unworthy again and again as a result? Now I knew what it must feel like to be an angelic outsider looking in with jealous eyes and . . . through this new lens Demon: A Memoir was born.” —Tosca Lee
