NEW YORK (AP) -- Naomi Wolf's U.S. publisher is postponing

the release of her new book, "Outrages," after a BBC

interviewer challenged some of her findings. Wolf is openly

objecting to the delay.

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt announced that "new questions" had

come up about "Outrages," originally scheduled to come out

next week. It already has been published in the United


Last month, BBC interviewer Matthew Sweet questioned Wolf's

research on the book, which centers on the mistreatment of

gays in Victorian England. On Friday, Wolf tweeted that she

made what she thought were the needed changes and that she

believed her book's core findings remained valid. She wrote

that she strongly objected to the decision.

Wolf, best known for the best-selling "The Beauty Myth," has

often faced questions about accuracy in her work.
