No ban for DSK book

DSK didn't succeed in having a tell-all book by a former lover banned, but his lawyers did manage to oblige its publishers to sell an "insert" with it. Marcela Iacub's "Beauty and the Beast" has caused a stir in France since extracts of it were published in Le Nouvel Observateur last week. The magazine, the writer and her publisher also have to pay €75,000 in damages to Strauss-Kahn between them.
