Naomi Wolf’s U.S. publisher blamed the feminist author for several major factual misinterpretations in her new book.

The longtime writer and former Democratic strategist appeared on the BBC on Thursday to promote her new book, Outrages: Sex, Censorship and the Criminalization of Love, which explores the criminalization of homosexuality in the U.K. in the 19th century.

But during the interview, host Matthew Sweet seemed to unwind a key claim in the book: that dozens of men were executed under a sodomy law that existed in the U.K. at the time. Sweet pointed out that Wolf—who said she based her book’s findings on specific legal records—misinterpreted the phrase “death recorded,” and that in fact there was no evidence to show the examples in the book were actual executions.
