Banned Books - Animal Farm

Animal Farm - George Orwell (1945 but written 1943) 

A practice run for Nineteen Eighty-Four, this political satire is clearly mapped onto the Soviet Union. Banned there, of course, but also in Islamic and far eastern countries that object to talking animals. Attacking a war-time ally was problematic, so Orwell was two years finding a publisher anywhere.
