Woody Allen memoir finally published after being pulped

Woody Allen memoir finally published after being pulped

Arcade, which is an imprint of the independent publisher Skyhorse, released Apropos of Nothing on Monday in hardcover and e-book editions. Allen goes into the Dylan Farrow allegations in the book and once again denies them, while claiming that Mia Farrow has an "Ahab-like quest" for revenge.

Apropos of Nothing begins in a wry tone, describing his New York City upbringing and love affairs with Diane Keaton and others with a sense of nostalgia and angst that also mirrors Allen movies ranging from Radio Days and The Purple Rose of Cairo to Annie Hall and Hannah and Her Sisters.

A statement by Hachette at the time called the decision "a hard one".

Recalling the day Farrow learned of the affair, after discovering erotic photographs of her twenty-something daughter at Allen's apartment, Allen writes: "Of course I understand her shock, her dismay, her rage, everything". Allen and Farrow, 75, soon ended their 12-year partnership in 1992.

Woody Allen has released his new memoir. "I always answered I'd do it again in a heartbeat".

Allen has long denied those claims and was not charged after two separate investigations in the 1990s. I see myself standing amongst them defiantly.

Woody Allen has written that he "would welcome Dylan [Farrow] with open arms if she'd ever want to reach out", in his recently published memoir Apropos of Nothing. Farrow and then-husband, Andre Previn, had adopted Soon-Yi from an orphanage in Korea in 1975 when she was just five years old.

"One of the saddest things of my life was that I was deprived of the years of raising Dylan and could only dream about showing her Manhattan and the joys of Paris and Rome", he wrote in the controversial book. "If I did, I wanted her to be legally protected, to get all I owned automatically with no hitches".

Allen dedicated the memoir to Soon-Yi, to whom he is now married.

The acclaimed book further delved into the #MeToo movement.

"For the record, I was never contacted by any fact checkers to verify the information in this memoir, demonstrating an egregious abdication of Hachette's most basic responsibility", she added, a reference to her brother's 2019 book Catch and Kill, which was published by Hachette. Stephen King wrote on Twitter: 'It's who gets muzzled next that worries me'. "When actual flak did arrive they thoughtfully reassessed their position and dumped the book like it was a hunk of Xenon 135", he writes, also referring to himself as a "toxic pariah and menace to society".

"When speakers are shouted down or even assaulted on campuses for simply having a different point of view, journalists are banned from press conferences and truth is too often dismissed as "fake news", we as publishers prefer to give voice to a respected writer and filmmaker, rather than bow down to the politically correct pressures of the modern world".
