Little Brown
If it’s navel-gazing you’re after, you’ve come to the wrong place; ditto treacly self-examination. Rather, his observations turn outward: a fight between two men on a bus, a fight between two men on the street, pedestrians being whacked over the head or gathering to watch as a man considers leap­ing to his death. There’s a dirty joke shared at a ... Weiterlesen

Little Brown
Naomi Wolf illuminates a dramatic history: how the Obscene Publications Act of 1857 led to a maelstrom, with reverberations lasting to our day. At once, dissent and morality, deviancy and normalcy, became modern legal concepts: if writers, editors, printers and booksellers did not uphold the law and the morals of society they faced serious repercussions. Wolf depicts the ways this ... Weiterlesen
