Disguised as a Man: Malachi Martin & Me
Father Malachi Martin, a Roman Catholic priest, scholar and exorcist, was a best-selling author and media celebrity in the mid-1970's. At the peak of his career, a fifty-seven year-old Martin began a disastrous Abelard-Heloise-style love affair with a troubled teenager who had seen him on TV. She now recounts the story of her decade-long romance with the controversial cult figure and pop-prophet.
