Rosset : my life in publishing and how I fought censorship / by Barney Rosset.

Rosset, Barney, (author.).


"Here are the stories behind the filming of Norman Mailer's 'Maidstone' and Samual Beckett's 'Film'; the battles with the US government over 'Tropic of Cancer' and much else; the search for Che's diaries; the development of the legendary 'Evergreen review'; Rosset's romance with the expressionist painter Joan Mitchell, and more. At times appalling, more often inspiring, never boring or conventional: this is Barney Rosset, uncensored"--Front jacket flap.
