Woody Allen memoir released by new publisher after protests
Los Angeles: The autobiography of filmmaker Woody Allen was released in the United States Monday, swiftly finding a new home after its original publisher pulled out amid protests over abuse allegations.
New York-based Arcade Publishing announced it has acquired world rights to the title, "Apropos of Nothing," and launched it Monday with no advance warning.
Earlier this month publisher Hachette scrapped plans to release the book penned by Allen, 84 and returned all rights to the author.
Hachette had canceled the launch after Allen's son Ronan Farrow, who is extremely critical of his father, denounced the book group, and staff staged a walkout. - AFP
