JFK Jr. Memoir Dropped

09/22/1998 at 12:00 AM EDT

Former George magazine executive editor Richard Blow, who raised eyebrows and temperatures when it was announced that his memoir of his late friend and colleague John F. Kennedy Jr. was sold for a $750,000, is now without a publisher. Little, Brown (a division of Time Warner, which also owns PEOPLE) has dropped the manuscript, reportedly because it was revealed that such a book would have violated a confidentiality agreement Blow signed when began work at George. Blow, 35, is now said to be shopping for a new publisher for the book, which he is calling a tribute to Kennedy, not a tell-all. Even so, many people are outraged that Blow would even consider such a project, given that he fired some George staffers for speaking publicly about Kennedy in the days following his fatal air crash last July.
