I didn't even know there is such a thing as a 'censored' version of Howl! Surprised you could get any intelligent meaning out of it, but some is better than nothing!
Those non-chain used book stores are full of treasures, and I am sure your wad of money was sell spent!
It wasn't censored to much of an extent and was actually labeled as 'un-censored'...apparently they STILL had to censor it to an extent. I should have clarified: Remember the line 'And the mother was fucked' (I'm paraphrasing, been a while since I read it)? Instead, in the 'un-censored' version (I refuse to refer to it as that with any legitimaticy because I'm a stubborn sort) it has 'And the mother was ****ed'....good job guys, we really couldn't figure that one out.
I believe it may have censored some other curse words here and there, too.
Indeed. Nine Lives Bookstore....named for the nine cats that live there which means a person will either love the store or find it to be the bane of their existence.
I spent a good $45 to $50 (unusual for me in one haul from a single book store) but got plenty of good material. Everything from a complete OOP translation of Sa'di's The Rose Garden
to Rimbaud, to Howl
