After so much press coverage of allegations of sexual misconduct by Harvey Weinstein, how much more is there to say on the subject? Quite a lot, it turns out. In She Said, Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, the New York Times journalists who broke the story, chronicle how the newspaper came to investigate the behaviour of the media mogul, the legwork required to pin down proof of what had long been an open secret in Hollywood and the gobsmacking counter-tactics employed by Team Weinstein. This story behind the story offers up previously undisclosed sources and documents, and the authors also provide an analysis of the aftermath of the exposé. Even though we know what happens, She Said reads like a thriller, with Weinstein’s goons hot on the heels of the reporters as they try to get gun-shy sources to speak on record, leading to a final showdown in the Times’s midtown offices.
