This true story of a woman with multiple personalities fascinated me. It was published over forty years ago, and has been filmed as both a TV mini-series and a movie. There are harrowing accounts of the circumstances that lead Sybil to develop multiple personalities, and gripping revelations as the various personae are exposed.
The book sold over six million copies, then in 2011 a book ‘Sybil Exposed’ by Debbie Nathan argued that the story wasn’t true. If I had found this out earlier I may not have persevered with the book, but it makes an engrossing story anyway. I wonder if any of my blog readers have seen this book? What did you think of it?
“With sixteen people in her mind
the true Sybil was hard to find.”
