Alex Malarkey is best known for co-writing the book "The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven." The book was a supposed autobiography about the time he was in a coma following a car accident.
The book was written by Alex and his father, Kevin Malarkey, in 2010. It told a story of when Alex was in a coma in 2004 at just six years old. During the time he was in a coma, he claimed to have had several experiences with heaven, Jesus Christ and even the Devil. The book was later removed from shelves after Alex admitted to lying about going to heaven for attention.
