Book about recanting false accusation

Here is a video promoting a 2010 book on “My Lie: A True Story of False Memory”.
Meredith Maran: “When I was in my 30s I accused my father of molesting me, and then I realized it wasn’t true”

Friend: “The same thing happened to me”
The accuser is also the victim here, as some evil shrink convinced her to blame all her emotional troubles on some fictional abuse.

Note that the friend is still playing the role of a victim when whe says “The same thing happened to me.” People are responsible for their false accusations. But give the author credit for having the guts to come clean with the truth.
