Woody has now not commented on the determination. His sister and manufacturer Letty Aronson declined to remark when reached via the New York Times.
“The decision to cancel Mr. Allen’s book was a difficult one,” Hachette stated in a commentary on Twitter on Friday. “At HBG we take our relationships with authors very seriously and do not cancel books lightly. We have published and will continue to publish many challenging books. As publishers, we make sure every day in our work that different voices and conflicting points of view can be heard.”
Grand Central Publishing, a department of Hachette, introduced on Monday that his ebook Apropos of Nothing can be launched in April. Ronan, whose 2019 ebook about sexual misconduct via males within the place of job, Catch and Kill, used to be revealed via every other imprint of the crowd, slammed the verdict on Twitter an afternoon later. He stated his sister “has never been contacted to respond to any denial or mischaracterization of the abuse she suffered at the hands of Woody Allen.”
An afternoon prior to Hachette introduced the cancellation of Woody’s memoir, Hachette workers staged a walkout to protest their corporate’s plans to put up the ebook.
“As a company, we are committed to offering a stimulating, supportive, and open work environment for all our staff. Over the past few days, HBG leadership had extensive conversations with our staff and others,” Hachette’s commentary stated. “After listening, we came to the conclusion that moving forward with publication would not be feasible for HBG.”
