Obscene and Indecent Materials: The Health Benefits of Reading and Defending Banned Books
BY ZAC THRIFFILEY
@ VOL 8
ON APR 06, 2018
Zac Thriffiley has made an only slightly lucrative career out of reading the books that others have told him not to read. Born and raised in New Orleans, his aunt was shocked to find him reading Moby-Dick in the middle of Barnes and Noble at the impressionable age of five, and she promptly replaced it with the more age-appropriate title, Green Eggs and Ham. When he was nine years old, his father scolded him for saying the word “bastard” out loud while reading A Separate Peace, and his mother nearly fainted when he brought a copy of Lady Chatterley’s Lover into their home (his grandmother had nearly gotten expelled for reading the same book at school fifty years earlier). Such books taught him dangerous lessons, such as how to swear effectively, overthrow dystopian totalitarian governments, and treat everyone with kindness and respect.
