What kind of person would marry her own father?
In 1992, Woody Allen got caught with a stack of naked Polaroid photos of Soon-Yi Previn, the young daughter of his common-law wife, Mia Farrow. Previn was essentially his own daughter, and as Farrow quickly learned, Previn and Allen were sleeping together.
Although a lot has been said about what Woody Allen did, not nearly as much has been reported about the woman he married. Who is this girl who slept with and married her own stepfather, and how did her life go so wrong?
Soon-Yi Previn’s life story is difficult to hear, but it’s worth taking the time to understand. Hers is a life full of pain, right from the moment she was born. It is a psychological profile of a victim of sexual abuse—an insight into the devastating effects of neglect and abuse.
