Without Feathers (1975, ISBN 0-394-49743-0) is one of Woody Allen's best known literary pieces. The book spent four months on the New York Times Best Seller List. The book is a collection of essays and also features two one-act plays, Death and God.
The title Without Feathers is a reference to Emily Dickinson's poem "'Hope' Is the Thing with Feathers", reflecting Woody Allen's neurotic sense of hopelessness. The Dickinson poem is mentioned in one of the stories in the collection.
