Comments from Charles Johnson
I DID enjoy reading this. Your quotations from Milton and D.H. Lawrence are worth a reader memorizing. And I had the same experience with The Satanic Verses that you did. I just couldn't read it. But "Of Censorship and the books that nobody reads" was a pleasure from start to finish.
