Two New York Times journalists detail their investigation into Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and his years of sexual assault and harassment. Kantor and Twohey provide a suspenseful, informative look at what it takes to pursue a high-profile story involving many people, some of whom were reluctant to come forward, and how their story set off a national conversation.
“‘She Said’ is riveting and, crafted by two of the country’s most talented journalists, a vibrant, cinematic read.”— CNN
“‘She Said,’ a chronicle of the #MeToo era by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, reveals the power of women who, together, refused to stay silent.” – The New Republic
“’She Said,’ a new book detailing the astonishing behind-the-scenes of the New York Times’s bombshell Harvey Weinstein exposé, is an instant classic of investigative journalism. If your jaw dropped at the newspaper’s original allegations against the predatory movie mogul, prepare for it to hit the floor as authors Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey recount how they uncovered the story: secret meetings, harrowing phone calls, private text exchanges with A-list actresses agonizing over whether to go on the record. Ashley Judd plays the stoic warrior; Gwyneth Paltrow, the circumspect liaison who tries to help the reporters find other sources.” – Monica Hesse, The Washington Post
