Ronan Farrow writing book about US military aid

NEW YORK (AP) - Ronan Farrow, already known to the world as an activist, attorney, government official and the son of Mia Farrow, is set to become a published author.

The Penguin Press announced Tuesday that it had acquired Farrow's "Pandora's Box: How American Military Aid Creates America's Enemies." The book is scheduled to be released in 2015. Penguin is billing "Pandora's Box" as a "hard-hitting investigation" of a "surprising dark side" of U.S. foreign policy.

The 25-year-old Farrow was in the news recently when his mother suggested in an interview with Vanity Fair that he wasn't the son of Woody Allen, as was long assumed, but of Frank Sinatra. Mia Farrow and Sinatra were married briefly in the 1960s and remained friendly until his death, in 1998. Allen has called the claim "absurd."
