I wrote a post a while back on Anna Broinowski’s documentary Forbidden Lie$, which examined some of the claims of Norma Khouri’s autobiography Forbidden Love. Well, Broinowski’s film has just won the Australian Film Institute’s award for Best Documentary and was the subject of discussion on yesterday’s Australia Talks on Radio National. If you follow the link you’ll be able to listen to the program which will be available online for a month.

Most of the books were pulped after the scandal around the fanciful nature of Khouri’s autobiography broke; but I like the story of the French publishers who simply put ‘fiction’ stickers on the covers of their remaining stock.
