This photograph released by Atria Books shows Samantha Geimer on the cover of her memoir,"The Girl: A Life in the Shadow of Roman Polanski". Geimer's publisher says that during her 1993 civil suit against Polanski she obtained rights to the pictures Polanski took during two photo sessions in 1977, one of which led to charges that he plied her with half a Quaalude and champagne and raped her. Geimer has said she forgives him and that she is writing the book to reclaim her identity.
