the genuine article

What a great story the whole thing is though. I bet the rights to The Norma Khouri Story have already been auctioned off. Helen Garner could write it. Anyway, I thought the Malcolm Knox and Caroline Overington article at the weekend was quite savage in places:

Her most recent communication with the Herald was a voicemail message on Monday containing incoherent screams and moans of self-hate, calling herself such a loser. Her friends and even her opponents, such as al-Sabbagh, pity her as a disturbed and confused individual who has been breaking under the stress of maintaining her lies in public.

God. If Khouri is as mentally unstable as the article implies then that's a bit harsh, don't you reckon?
