'Going Clear,' Lawrence Wright's book about Scientology, has its release delayed in Canada(Read article summary)
The Canadian release of 'Going Clear' has now been put on hold while its publisher reviews libel law in the country. The book's publication was already cancelled in the UK.
“Knopf U.S. holds the Canadian rights to the book and due to the tight publishing schedule, a Canadian legal review was not completed at the time of the U.S. publication,” Knopf said in a statement. “Given the differing legal systems in the US and Canada, Knopf decided not to make the book available for distribution in Canada at the present time until such legal review is completed.”
