Woody Allen’s writer has decided to cancel the projected launch of the movie director’s memoir”Apropos of Nothing”.
Hachette Book Group declared that the blackout on Friday after days of criticism centered on allegations that Woody Allen sexually abused his daughter Dylan Farrow. On Thursday many Hachette workers staged a walkout.
In a statement, Hachette Book Group stated ““The decision to cancel Mr. Allen’s book was a hard one,” a spokeswoman for the publication said in a statement. “We carry our relationships with all writers very seriously, nor cancel novels gently. We’ve printed and will continue to release many books that are challenging. As publishers, we ensure daily in our job that distinct voices and contradictory points of view could be observed.”
Allen’s book was first scheduled to emerge a month.
The manager’s son Ronan Farrow stated Hachette’s conclusion was exceptionally unprofessional and both he and his sister, Dylan, hadn’t been approached by the writer to reality check their daddy’s publication.
Woody Allen has denied any wrongdoing and was not charged following two individual investigations from the 1990s. However, the allegations have received fresh attention at the #MeToo era.
