Review Text

Mr. Wallace in his article Censorship Today (1969) declared very rightfully "I do not believe in literary censorship or censorship of entertainment. The minute you forbid a book or film, suppress it, you create vast interest in it." Far be it from us to wish to create vast interest in Mr. Wallace's new book, which, as was his last, has been withheld from us. We find this rather difficult to reconcile with Mr. Wallace's further statement to the effect that "I strongly feel that the act of writing for publication is one that invites public judgment. If the judgment is sometimes adverse, the author has no right to oppose it." The situation noted, we return willingly to durance vile. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
