Polanski Victim’s Book Uses Picture He Took

The woman who was sexually assaulted by director Roman Polanski when she was 13 has written a memoir that will feature a cover photo shot by Polanski three weeks before he drugged her and had sex with her.

Samantha Geimer’s publisher says that during her 1993 lawsuit against Polanski, Geimer obtained rights to the pictures Polanski took during two photo sessions in 1977, one of which led to charges that he plied her with half a Quaalude and champagne and raped her.

Polanski, who pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse, was ordered to pay her $500,000 and to turn over the photos.

Geimer has said she forgives him and that she is writing the book to reclaim her identity.

Atria Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster, said it will be releasing Geimer’s book “The Girl: Emerging from the Shadow of Roman Polanski” this fall.
