Woody Allen’s memoir got released, both as a book and as an audiobook (with Allen himself as a narrator):

It was from one of Lionel Shriver’s interviews that I learned of the upcoming book, and of how the publishing house that was about to release it, Hachette, dropped the book after a protest staged by its suddenly concerned staff. I thought the book was going to be buried entirely, forgetting that there is such a thing as ebooks and audiobooks. Perhaps Shriver herself forgot it, because she said at the time, "I would like to be able to read Woody Allen’s memoir", which I took to mean that she thought she now wasn’t going to be able to.

Curiously, now, that I am looking at the book description on Amazon, I am seeing a different publisher, Arcade. The Hachette story must be about the UK then.
