For nearly half her life, Nicole Brown Simpson was known as O. J. Even now, it is her former husband, charged with the murder of Mrs. Simpson and a friend, Ronald Goldman, who is drawing most of the attention. Several times in the last years of their marriage and after the divorce.
It is, as Kim Goldman writes in that preface, "a long and twisted journey".
Victim Thrived on Life in Fast Lane, His Friends Recall - Los Angeles Times
Kim and Fred Goldman met me in a London hotel room earlier this week to take me through those intriguing twists and to explain why they thought it a good idea to publish a book still overwhelmingly written - or at least dictated - by a man whose name they cannot bear to pronounce.
The idea that this monster could make money out of this book just appalled us. But most of the allure of the book to the prospective publishers focused on chapter six of Simpson's account, in which he set out in great detail, albeit hypothetically, what he would have done on the night of June 12 had he killed his ex-wife.
In the US, long obsessed by the one-time all-American sporting hero's trial for murder and by the issues of race, celebrity, domestic violence and justice it incarnated, the prospect of Simpson's hypothetical confession was eagerly anticipated: In a fittingly weird twist, this strange book had been ghostwritten by screenwriter Pablo F Fenjves, who was Nicole's neighbour and who had been a prosecution witness at Simpson's trial.
Fenjves had testified hearing the plaintive wailings of his neighbour Nicole's dog in the aftermath of the murders, yet 11 years later he was hired to spend weeks in Florida hotels interviewing OJ for the book. But before the book was published, a wave of disgust convulsed the US.
An online boycott was launched and the Goldmans organised a petition, eventually signed by nearly 60, people. Some booksellers refused to stock the book, while the Borders chain said it would donate any profits to charities for victims of domestic violence.

Then the publishers got cold feet and Murdoch decided that allcopies would be pulped. The Goldmans decided they would get the rights to Simpson's book and publish it themselves. Florida is very friendly to debtors: He declared himself bankrupt to avoid paying us.
We couldn't get any money from him - not that we wanted the money for ourselves, you understand, we just wanted him to suffer - until the prospect of us buying up the rights to his book became a possibility. The Goldmans' lawyer, David Cook, said at the time: Justice has arrived in Miami.
He had escaped our reach for nearly 11 years, but not this time. Instead it is credited to "the Goldman family". The title, If I Did It, appears on the dustjacket, but the "If" is printed in grey and is barely legible while the words "I Did It" are printed in lurid pink. It is not the first time that the Goldman family have published a book about Ron's murder: Our Search for Justice.
There is now a little library of books about the two murders that have long intrigued Americans: What do the Goldmans hope to get from publishing the book? The Goldmans say they will not benefit financially from the book.
Bizarrely, however, OJ will. Ron deserved justice and he deserved to live," says Fred. Simpson speaks of having been visited at home on June by an acquaintance called Charlie who tells him that his ex-wife and her friend had been "partying".

- If he did it ...
Charlie, whom he had met a few weeks earlier "at dinner with some friends", came along for the ride. Outside Nicole's house, Simpson met Ron Goldman, who told Simpson he had visited Nicole's house to return a pair of her mother's glasses she had left in a restaurant where he was working as a waiter. But Simpson did not believe that story. The exchange continues, with Simpson saying: Probably a nice bottle of red wine breathing on the counter, waiting for you.
You think I'm fucking stupid or something? She fell hard on her right side - I could hear the back of her head hitting the ground - and she lay there for a moment, not moving. Whether you believe this to be real or not, please read on knowing that we are not in the business of fooling anyone. Welcome to Conversations With Dead People. It was certainly on mine as I followed the series faithfully, finally learning the intricacies and details of a case that occurred when I was only 9 years old.
In this series, I have decided to trust my gut and my heart when it comes to choosing the subjects for our sessions, and there was no doubt I wanted our second session to be with Nicole Brown Simpson. When we connect for our session, she tells me that Nicole was definitely ready to speak, but — in a surprise twist — Ronald Goldman was there as well, and he was more forceful than Nicole was in terms of wanting to say something.
As always, Amy and I chat a bit before getting down to business. Amy closes her eyes. I suppose on a certain level, she is. At last, her eyelids flutter and she says: I feel them both, so… Me: Amy opens her eyes, looking almost dazed. Um, ask a question. Amy closes her eyes again. I think we can all agree on that. Most likely for fame and money. I ignore it until she says: Is your camera doing weird things?
I never like to overload Amy at the beginning of a session — the more violent or unpleasant a scenario with a spirit is, the more it affects her personally — so I try to softball one towards Ron, since he seemed so eager to speak. What was he doing at her house that night? A phone call had been made saying the glasses were missing and Ron volunteered to return them. This is an interesting one. Not by her — in person, or speaking, even — was given a message for him to go there at a certain time.
And, he is — Amy closes her eyes again, concentrating hard. Or were they just friends? Oh — oh, intimate? I just literally saw a flash of them… She makes a gesture with her fingers that describes what she saw. The position and bodies and everything… just… yeah. I guess the question would be, then, uh… where did his — there is a reason out there as to why he was supposedly at her house.
Um, that was not that they were intimate. As she starts to focus I do what I sometimes do during our sessions — minimize the Skype tab, pull up my browser, and do some research. I kind of get, or am hearing, bisexuality? She goes on but instead we get… well… just listen for yourself. I have been on many Skype calls. I know what it sounds like when the connection is slowed, interrupted, or fragmented. That is not what it sounds like. Whatever she said had been entirely censored.
We discuss the anomaly and Amy does a brief pendulum session where she consults a pendulum for a yes or no answer. She asks Ron if he she was wrong about his bisexuality, if she had heard wrong. She asks again if Ron was bisexual — and gets a hard no. She had heard wrong.OJ SIMPSON: The Case of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman?! Part 1
Ron Goldman was not, in fact, bisexual. We go back to the alibi for the night of the murder. And he said that he was not truthful with people about his… connection with her because of her fear, number one. And she asked him not to share, with people.
And so… it comes from friends, specifically at work, that… he gave… reason as to his connection with her. So that he protected her.
I explain the Mezzaluna glasses excuse. That she needed to talk to him, and it was important. So he told friends that the reason she was reaching out to him was because… she had left something.
He was gonna return it. So that clears that up. Calling, posing as her [Nicole] so that he [Ron] would go there at a specific time. Amy closes her eyes for only a moment before opening them again. She looks deadly serious.
And he did it himself?
