Yes, for those of us who sell books to a publisher for a living, it’s astounding that he got away with that. There is no way my publisher (Penguin) would allow me to keep an advance and not turn in a book.

Isn’t an advance part of a contract? Would it not be a breach of contract for one not to produce a manuscript after one has accepted the advance?
