She Said: The New York Times Bestseller

Pressestimmen A gripping read. Very few journalists can claim to have changed the world, but at 2.05pm on Thursday 5 October 2017, Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey did just that. Writing in the third person, 'Jodi' and 'Megan' become characters in their drama, the narrative speeding towards the moment when the story that Weinstein can't stop detonates with shattering force. She Said is a clear-eyed account of the journalistic endeavour required to tie down a story of such significance. Feels like a Hollywood film in the making ***** (Daily Telegraph)She Said is a fascinating tale of investigative journalism in action, the ultimate story-behind-the-story filled with so many twists and obstacles that it often reads like a Hollywood screenplay (Evening Standard)An inside look at the story that brought down Harvey Weinstein. She Said stitches together remarkable elements previously unknown to the public. More than anything, She Said depicts the incremental work of pulling at long neglected threads as well as the institutional heft and individual bravery required to hold those abuses to account (Guardian)She Said is not a lurid celebrity exposé, nor even a dark farce, but a cool, just-the-facts-ma'am account of how Kantor and Twohey uncovered the horror story that ignited the MeToo movement. It's a sober, engrossing ode to the First Amendment. The value of She Said lies not only in what it tells us about how victims of sexual harassment are muzzled and mocked, but also in what we learn about the steady, clear-sighted, occasionally frightening, often quite thankless work involved in investigative reporting (The Times)Brilliant and deeply satisfying (Observer)A seamless and suspenseful account of Kantor and Twohey's reportorial journey, a gripping blow-by-blow of how they managed to corroborate allegations that had been chased and abandoned by multiple journalists before them (New York Times)This Harvey Weinstein investigation is steely with the facts and short on sentimentality. This has the morally satisfying arc of a thriller, with all the suspense, a clear dynamic of right and wrong, and partial justice at the end (i)The groundbreaking new book that tells the true story of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. With plenty of unknown material and new discoveries, She Said serves as a testament to the importance of journalism and how facts can drive social change in an age of fake news (Stylist)She Said is first and foremost an account of incredible reporting. Kantor and Twohey show the background research they ran on sources, to protect both them and the paper, the careful way they documented and substantiated information, and their extraordinary precision in acquiring proof. We know how the story ends, but She Said is nonetheless deeply suspenseful, a kind of less swaggering All the President's Men (NPR)Captivating. The cumulative effect is almost cinematic, a sort of All the President's Men for the #MeToo era, except the men are women, and they don't protect the boss, they take him down (Washington Post) Werbetext The thrilling untold story of the Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters who broke the Harvey Weinstein story Alle Produktbeschreibungen
