Banned Books - Ulysses


UlyssesJames Joyce.   (1922)
Because it was initially serialised, Ulysses was controversial long before book-form publication. Banned for obscenity, smuggled, burned, widely read and discussed, it was finally declared not obscene in the US in 1934. In this writer’s opinion, flicking through to the rude parts is, for once, valid. The naughty bits really are the best bits – and the easiest to understand.
