Perhaps most disturbing is the fact that several people knew all about Kathy's deception and when they were contacted by the publishers, they simply shut their mouths and allowed the publishers and the public to be duped and conned. Bad as Kathy is, these people are nearly in the same league as Kathy. Between them they damaged all the genuine survivors of Irish Institutions.
I do feel conned by Kathy and by the publishers who didn't even bother to check out her story. This book gave information that I didn't know about her life, about the publishing world of books and about the number of people accuse and are accused of terrible abuse.
I recommend this book as it gives clear facts in stages and it makes total sense.
This work is very similar to that of Daniel Ganzfried, a Swiss journalist who had the courage to look closely at Benjamin Wilkormirski, a literary hoaxer who was at one time winning prizes as a Holocaust memoirialist. Readers interested in this topic might also like to look at Stefan Maechler, "The Wilkomirski Affair: A Study in Biographical Truth."
I'm looking forward to his next book, "Anne's Real Diary" in which he exposes Anne Frank. Just kidding.
This woman's actions defy description, nothing short of abuse all over again. Contribution from a support group in the book makes their feelings clear. I am so Mr Kelly asked the questions as to why she did it, was it for monetary gain or something else. Thank you for this expose, so well written
which ensures that truth may not break through the wall of an alternative agenda.
An invaluable investigation which likely will never receive
the same level of attention from the mass media,for whatever reason,as the tale which
prompted it.Should be used in educational settings,particularly media and legal,to
highlight the ease with which damaging accusations can be propogated and believed despite absence of real evidence.
