    Censor-baiting and provocative, Jack Kahane's Obelisk Press subsidised the literary fiction of authors such as Henry Miller, Lawrence Durrell and Anais Nin, James Joyce and DH Lawrence by producing 'dirty books' - cheap erotica and trash fiction - and published in Paris books that were banned in the USA and Britain. Pearson's study tells the story of this extraordinary publishing enterprise and includes the first biographical essay on Kahane himself and a complete bibliography of Obelisk titles. Slightly off-mint.
