Samantha Geimer

The Girl

Published by: Simon & Schuster

What became of the girl who, at the age of 13 in 1977, was raped by film director Roman Polanski? In this book she breaks a 35-year silence to tell, in a remarkably honest and objective account, what happened on that evening, how it happened, and her subsequent sufferings at the hands of the press – and even the California judicial system.
