Banned Books: The World’s Most Controversial Books, Past and Present edited by Victoria Heyworth Dunne

Which novel is claimed to have inspired an assassination? Why were Grimm’s Fairy Tales once banned in German schools? Which book about censorship has routinely fallen afoul of the censors? Banned Books brings together some of the world’s most controversial written works, form Gustave Flaubert’s Madame Bovary to J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye. Shocking, scandalous, offensive, and often surprising, this books offer a fascinating insight into censorship, culture, society, and politics. – Back Cover

The All Saints Book Club is now supporting the book sanctuary initiative. We continue to include at least one banned book each year in our reading.
