About the Author

The Censorship of Lawrence Ferlinghetti and the Unbooking of Ryan T. Anderson

What they have in common is the courage of their convictions, a willingness to challenge the conventional pieties of their respective ages, and to do so in ways that conformist critics are quick to label offensive, obscene, unsafe, or misframed.
