She once jokingly referred to her multiple personalities as Sybil, Inc. Later the joke (which was always on her) came true, and there was talk of Sybil dolls, buttons, and t-shirts. I’m disappointed they never got around to making the board game they spent so much effort on. That would have been surreal. Much like Blatty’s Exorcist, her story ignited a psychocultural phenomenon, and one with even more to answer for because, at least for a while, it was taken seriously. Debbie Nathan does a good job exposing the true history of this sad and sordid case, but soft-pedals the low motives of “Sybil”‘s exploiters. Really, it was all about the money.
