Lady Chatterley's LoverPaperback - 2013
When first published privately in Italy, in 1928, Lady Chatterly's Lover was too risqué for readers and was considered unprintable. It wasn't until three decades later, in 1960, that the novel could be printed openly in the United Kingdom.

Lady Chatterly's Lover will surely pique the interest and curiosity of the most discerning of readers.
