The woman at the center of filmmaker Roman Polanski's 1970s sex scandal is to tell all about her encounter with the director in a new book.

Polanski fled America and became an exile in France in the late 1970s after he was indicted on unlawful sex charges, including the rape of Samantha Geimer, who was 13 when she met the Chinatown director at a party.

Geimer later sued Polanski for sexual assault and emotional distress, and the pair eventually settled the lawsuit.

The scandal reared up again in 2009 when Polanski was arrested in Switzerland and threatened with extradition to the U.S. to face the 30-year-old sex charges. The filmmaker won his extradition battle and was allowed to return home to France.

Now Geimer has announced plans to reveal all about her fling with Polanski and her dealings with the filmmaker over the years in her book The Girl: Emerging from the Shadow of Roman Polanski, which is set for publication next year (13).

Now 47, Geimer was reluctant to speak about the scandal when Polanski was arrested in Switzerland three years ago, but now she states, "I offer my story now without rage, but with purpose - to share a tale that in its detail will reclaim my identity. I am more than 'Sex Victim Girl.'"

A spokesman for Atria Books, who will publish the book, states, "Writing this book will finally lay to rest many ghosts from those years, and answer many questions that have remained unresolved."
