Aldous Huxley


Just in time for Banned Books Week, the wise elders of Texas have yanked from schools several terrific, Pulitzer-and-Nobel-winning books - Siddhartha, Song of Solomon, The Glass Castle - because they're icky, aka deal with real-life things like sex, swearing, Buddhism, violence. The books thus join the exalted ranks of offenders like To Kill A Mockingbird (trashy), Charlotte's Web (sacreligious), The Giving Tree (anti-forestry), Grapes of Wrath (commie, duh) and many more you should read.
