Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 09/26/2008
"OBSCENE is a warm, entertaining compendium of counterculture voices and literary landmarks. It's the story of a man who follow his own drummer....We should all be grateful that he does."
Los Angeles Times - 10/03/2008
"OBSCENE is as vital, incisive and entertaining as its subject, Barney Rosset, who in his 80s is as witty and impassioned as ever in his defense of the freedom of expression."

Product Description:

Cultural luminaries as varied as John Waters, Amiri Baraka, John Sayles, and Erica Jong join for the common cause of celebrating the career and influence of Barney Rosset. As the publisher of Grove Press and Evergreen Review, Rosset battled for the ending of censorship and brought many fascinating voices to the public ear. But the excitement didn't stop with his professional life; friends and family watched in horror as Rosset's experiences took him right to the edge. OBSCENE features music from Bob Dylan, the Doors, Patti Smith, and more.
