An upcoming memoir by Woody Allen is being criticized by two of his children, daughter Dylan Farrow and son, author-journalist Ronan Farrow.
Ronan has distanced himself from the publisher of his latest book, Catch and Kill after the company, Hachette, announced plans to publish Allen’s memoir titled, Apropos of Nothing.
Farrow said the move “shows a lack of ethics and compassion for victims of sexual abuse.”
“I was disappointed to learn through press reports that Hachette, my publisher, acquired Woody Allen’s memoir after other major publishers refused to do so and concealed the decision from me and its own employees while we were working on Catch and Kill — a book about how powerful men, including Woody Allen, avoid accountability for sexual abuse,” Ronan said in his statement.
He continued: “Hachette did not fact check the Woody Allen book. My sister Dylan has never been contacted to respond to any denial or mischaracterization of the abuse she suffered at the hands of Woody Allen — a credible allegation, maintained for almost three decades, backed up by contemporaneous accounts and evidence.”
