DSK: "Half-man, half-pig"

A French journalist has revealed all about a 7-month affair she had with Dominique Strauss-Kahn in the aftermath of the Nafissatou Diallo case. The Nouvel Observateur magazine has published extracts of "Belle et bête" (Beauty and the Beast). Marcela Iacub likens DSK to a half-man, half-pig... saying the pig in him had better qualities than the man! The book has been widely criticised, not least of all by Strauss-Kahn himself and his estranged wife Anne Sinclair.
