WikiLeaks chief memoir published, against his will

A long-awaited memoir by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is finally being published, without his approval.

London: A long-awaited memoir by WikiLeaks
founder Julian Assange is finally being published, without his
approval.

British publisher Canongate says the book, billed as an
"unauthorised autobiography," will be for sale in stores and
online tomorrow.

Last year Canongate paid Assange a large sum for the
rights to the memoir and Assange began working with a
ghostwriter on the book.

But the publisher said today Assange became increasingly
troubled by the prospect, and declared that "all memoir is
prostitution."

Canongate says Assange tried to cancel his contract, but
since he has not repaid his advance it is publishing the first
draft that Assange delivered to the publisher in March.

WikiLeaks did not immediately respond to requests for
comment.
