NEW YORK — Gay Talese has disavowed his disavowal.

A day after saying the credibility of his upcoming book, “The Voyeur’s Motel,” was “down the toilet” because he felt he had been deceived by the story’s primary source, the celebrated writer said he will be promoting it.

“Let me be clear: I am not disavowing the book and neither is my publisher. If, down the line, there are details to correct in later editions, we’ll do that,” Talese said in a statement through publisher Grove Atlantic

“Voyeur’s Motel” tells of a Colorado motel owner, Gerald Foos, who allegedly spied on his guests. On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that some events in the book happened after Foos sold the motel, in the 1980s.
