The Long-Awaited, Enormously Entertaining Memoir by One of the Great Artists of Our Time—Now a New York Times, USA Today,
Los Angeles Times, and Publishers Weekly Bestseller.
In this candid and often hilarious memoir, the celebrated director, comedian, writer, and actor offers a comprehensive, personal look at his tumultuous life. Beginning with his Brooklyn childhood and his stint as a writer for the Sid Caesar variety show in the early days of television, working alongside comedy greats, Allen tells of his difficult early days doing standup before he achieved recognition and success. With his unique storytelling pizzazz, he recounts his departure into moviemaking, with such slapstick comedies as Take the Money and Run, and revisits his entire, sixty-year-long, and enormously productive career as a writer and director, from his classics Annie Hall,Manhattan, and Hannah and Her Sisters to his most recent films, including Midnight in Paris. Along the way, he discusses his marriages, his romances and famous friendships, his jazz playing, and his books and plays. We learn about his demons, his mistakes, his successes, and those he loved, worked with, and learned from in equal measure.
This is a hugely entertaining, deeply honest, rich and brilliant self-portrait of a celebrated artist who is ranked among the greatest filmmakers of our time.
Woody Allen is a writer, director, and actor. He has been a stand-up comedian and a published author. He lives on the Upper East Side of Manhattan with his wife of twenty-two years, Soon-Yi, and their two daughters, Manzie and Bechet. He is an avid jazz enthusiast and devoted sports fan. In his own words, he regrets that he has never made a great film, though he says he is still trying.
“A lively tale of growing up lower-middle-class in Brooklyn; a gossipy account of scrambling up the comedy ladder from tabloid gag writer to Oscar winner . . . this memoir is for the most part a pleasure to read and entertaining company . . . you’d have to be a real sourpuss not to laugh at the fusillade of one-liners, two-liners, three-liners and so on.” —Peter Biskind, Los Angeles Times
“He has an authentic and easygoing voice on the page.” —New York Times
“Master, from youth, at self-deprecating humor, and born with New York City cojones, Allen says what others just think, controversy be damned.” –New York Journal of Books
“It was a laugh a minute…” –Newark Star-Ledger
'An enjoyable excursion into the mind, personality, and delicious whimsy of Woody Allen . . . one of our finest filmmakers and a man of droll wit, who came of age as an artist in the 1970s, just in time for his unique combination of cynicism and romanticism, as old gods died and new ones failed to appear.'—Jim Delmont, Omaha Dispatch
“His wit is on full display.” –The Federalist
“A brisk, vivid, and extremely funny account.” –Commentary Magazine
“Allen’s style is gossipy and spry.” –The Guardian
“it’s a fantastic book, so funny. . . . You feel like you’re in the room with him and yeah, it’s just a great book and it’s hard to walk away after reading that book thinking that this guy did anything wrong.”—Larry David
'If you love Woody Allen, you’ll love the book.'—Sam Wasson, Air Mail

Woody Allen lashed out at all the actors who have publicly condemned him in recent years and expressed regret about having worked on his films — or refuse to act for him again.
'I think they're well-meaning but they're foolish,' the filmmaker said in a new CBS News interview released on Paramount+ Sunday. 'All they're doing is they're persecuting a perfectly innocent person and they're enabling this lie.'

In the interview, which was recorded last July after the publication of Allen's memoir 'Apropos of Nothing,' Allen repeated his previous denials that he had sexually molested his then-7-year-old daughter Dylan Farrow in 1992. The accusations, which were investigated at the time, resurfaced in mid-2010s and led many to take a public stand against the filmmaker — particularly after the emergence of the #MeToo movement in 2017.

Stars such as Kate Winslet ('Wonder Wheel'), Mira Sorvino ('Mighty Aphrodite'), Elliot Page ('To Rome With Love') and Colin Firth ('Magic in the Moonlight') all expressed regret about working with Allen or said they would not act in a future project with the four-time Oscar winner.

The rom-com was filmed in 2017, but Amazon dropped plans for 2018 release after Dylan Farrow resurfaced accusations that he molested her in 1992 when she was 7. The film received a nominal North American release in fall 2020.
Elsewhere in the CBS interview, Allen repeated his denial of Dylan Farrow's 'preposterous' accusations that he molested her in 1992 in the midst of a bitter custody battle with his ex Mia Farrow, with whom he had three children (son Ronan and adopted children Moses and Dylan).

'It's so preposterous and yet the smear has remained,' Allen told CBS' Lee Cowan in the newly released interview. 'And they still prefer to cling to, if not the notion that I molested Dylan than the possibility that I molested her. Nothing that I ever did with Dylan in my life could be misconstrued as that.'
The new interview was broadcast just weeks after HBO aired a new four-part docuseries, 'Allen v. Farrow,' that re-examined the sexual abuse and child molestation accusations against him and included new and previously unseen footage from Dylan Farrow, Mia Farrow and other family and friends that bolstered the case against Allen.
