Fifty Shades Of Grey Banned
Published: May 20, 2012
Fifty Shades Of Grey Banned, It’s the fastest selling book of the year in the UK but British author EL James’s e****c novel Fifty Shades of Grey is just too p**nographic for residents of Brevard County, Florida, according to local librarians.
The book, which traces the increasingly sadomasochistic relationship between a young student and a rich businessman with a fondness for b****ge, has been removed from shelves in libraries in the Florida district. “It’s quite simple – it doesn’t meet our selection criteria,” Cathy Schweinsberg, library services director, told Florida Today. “Nobody asked us to take it off the shelves. But we bought some copies before we realised what it was. We looked at it, because it’s been called ‘mommy p**n’ and ‘soft p**n.’ We don’t collect p**n.”
Brevard does stock copies of the Kama Sutra, Fanny Hill, Fear of Flying, Tropic of Cancer and L****a – “because those other books were written years ago and became classics because of the quality of the writing,” said Schweinsberg. James’s novel, which has sold more than three million copies in the US and racked up over 100,000 sales in its first week on sale in the UK, “is not a classic”, she explained.
A local resident has now started a campaign to return the book to the area’s libraries, “because banning books is wrong, no matter what the perceived content”, and is collecting signatures for a petition. (The Guardian)
