Ronan Farrow to Publish a New Book That Details His Reporting on Harassment and Assault


Ronan Farrow is one of several investigative reporters who helped bring down Harvey Weinstein. More recently, his New Yorker report with Jane Mayer led to the resignation of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Now, Farrow will be covering it all in a new book titled Catch and Kill.

The Associated Press reports that Little, Brown and Company has acquired the book, via publisher Reagan Arthur, and it’s promising to expose even darker details about the harassment, abuse, and assault revelations of the last six months:

In a press release Saturday, Arthur says that “some of the most astonishing disclosures about what he uncovered are still to come.” The book promises original reporting and “stunning revelations” about how far private investigators, former spies and lawyers go to silence victims.

Farrow’s last book, War on Peace: The End of Diplomacy and the Decline of American Influence, focused on his time working for UN representative Richard Holbrooke in Iraq and Afghanistan. In an interview with the Guardian, Farrow says that his work in politics intertwines with his investigation into the abuses of Hollywood:

“I was in a briefing with a number of reporters and a source recently,” he says. “And one of the journalists present said: It’s not stories plural, it’s all one big story. And I think there’s some truth to that. With respect to the reporting I’ve been doing specifically, you’re looking at the very same systems of power and the abuse of power and the suppression of stories that are employed by powerful men in Hollywood and powerful people in politics.”

Sort of sounds like Catch and Kill is a sequel.
