Naomi Wolf's new book was pulled yesterday, five days before its pub date.
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt said that “new questions have arisen” about the author’s forthcoming book “Outrages” and that it would delay publication.

"Ms. Wolf said she opposed Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s decision to postpone the book and would do everything she could to make it available to United States readers."

Why would she do that when making it available to US readers would only prolong her embarrassment at having based an entire book on her misunderstanding of history and lack of research into it? Definition of obtuse

Why would she WANT this book released in an unrevised form? She should be thrilled that the publisher is willing to shelve her error. She could have every opportunity to reconnect research and revise her thesis.

Wow. I was floored when I first read about this. She doubled down? Pull the book, re-work it, and republish with accurate figures. You were publicly outed live in an interview! This isn't a misplaced footnote.

Shouldn't she just like... rewrite the problematic portion of the book, instead of leaving it and relying on readers to uh... *checks notes*... look up rebuttals and response essays on the internet?
