View Full Version : Which version do you prefer, and why?

The original 1966 edition known as Twinkle, Twinkle, "Killer" Kane - essentially a black comedy - or the heavily re-written and revised The Ninth Configuration from 1978, which would be the basis for the subsequent movie in 1980?

As to Bill's own personal preference, here is a quote from my essay comparing the two novels from "American Exorcist: Critical Essays on William Peter Blatty (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Exorcist:_Critical_Essays_on_William_Pete r_Blatty)" (2008):

Additionally, while being asked which incarnation of The Ninth Configuration he prefers, Blatty has stated: "After The Exorcist, I decided that I could deepen the story a great deal. So I rewrote it and fleshed it out, and fully developed the deeper implications and the theological themes. As to which I prefer – the first one is infinitely funnier and wilder, and stranger and more one of a kind; the second one has the same plot, but the prose is more finely crafted, I think. In the first one I allowed the comedy to carry me, so I think I prefer that one. In some ways I prefer that book to The Exorcist. I loved the characters and it was pleasurable to write. The Exorcist was truly such hard work."

I'm ashamed to admit that I haven't read either one, but your post is consistent with which one Bill recommended for me to read.

While I'm more of a Legion/EIII aficionado (nowhere near your proportions), TNC is a great film.
