A Tremendous Book, Still Worth Reading 15 Years Later

Remember the Tawana Brawley case? It took over the headlines in the late 80s with a horrifying tale of racism and abuse, with accusations against influential and senior law enforcement officials. In the end, it turned out that Tawana had lied about everything-- but the damage was done. This fascinating step by step account by the reporters who did the work to get to the bottom of the tangled story Tawana spun is still riveting today-- and the exploitation of her symbolic value by Black leaders (especially Al Sharpton) and the press is reminiscent of subsequent cases (OJ's, for example) that dominated months of news coverage. Track this down: truth is always more improbable than fiction, and this book proves it.
