Pare che Julian Assange alla fine non scriverà (o meglio si farà scrivere da Andrew O'Hagan) il memoir che Canongate e Alfred A Knopf stavano aspettando. Secondo lui il libro potrebbe aiutare le autorità USA.
Assange signed a high profile deal for his memoirs in December with the Edinburgh-based publishers Canongate and US firm Alfred A Knopf, for a reported sum of £930,000. The rights have subsequently been sold in 35 countries. [...] According to publishing sources, however, the contract has fallen through, at least in its original form, after Assange indicated he no longer wished to write the kind of book that was initially envisaged. He is thought to have told publishers that the book, ghostwritten by the novelist Andrew O'Hagan, could give ammunition to US prosecutors, whom he fears may seek his extradition on terrorist charges relating to WikiLeaks disclosures.
