Literature Suppressed on Sexual Grounds – Dawn B. Sova

Literature Suppressed on Sexual Grounds

Banned books are forbidden fruits of literature. Tempting and desirable.Years back I recall how eager I was to get hold of Satanic verses by Salman Rushdie than mend things with my ex.This book consciously scripts out a well researched list of the banned literary works from the early 20th century till the recent.It picks out a selected few titles and gives a brief summary of its content and censorship history.It is a wonderful read and quite informative. I would have liked it more if the authors could have elucidated the censorship aspect a bit more clearly. Yet, it is enjoyable as it has the list of all the scandalous books ever printed in the literature history.
