And The Banned Played On
Bienvenidos, readers. I’ll have the movie review of The Perks of Being a Wallflower up sometime this weekend, rest assured. However, I worry the ‘defense’ part of my reviews have become somewhat similar. Given that the reasons for banning the books have been similar, I’m not quite sure what to do about that.
In an attempt to break up the monotony of books banned for sex, drugs, and rock and roll, I’ll try to steer clear of teen lit for a while. I’m planning on doing the beloved children’s book Strega Nona next Friday and then perhaps dip into more classic literature (although those tend to be banned due to fornication, vices, and bawdy tavern songs, so maybe not quite the departure I’m hoping for). We’ll see.
Anyway, if there’s a book or type of book that you’d like me to review, I am open to suggestions, coercion, and demands. The Lovely Bones, The Canterbury Tales, Watchmen, All Quiet on the Western Front, Tom Sawyer, Mastering Multiple Position Sex, The Golden Compass, A Farewell to Arms, Twelfth Night, Herland, there’s a lot of directions to go in here, so let me know what strikes your forbidden fancy.
