Given the many criticisms received by the publishing house, they have decided to step back and cancel the launch.

Woody Allen’s memoir, which was to go on sale on April 7, will no longer go out.

The decision came in the midst of a wave of criticism that the Hachette publishing group received for giving voice to the filmmaker, for an accusation of sexual abuse of more than 30 years ago.

In a statement, the publisher said it was a “difficult decision”, but implied that it was the pressure of the group’s own employees that prompted this measure to be taken. The book was going to be called “A Propos of Nothing”.

Editorial executives concluded that “it was not possible to move forward with the publication,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The filmmaker’s memoir was going to be called “A Propos of Nothing.”

It is expected that in the coming weeks, a new publisher can launch the book, or Woody Allen himself will do it independently.
