In this Sunday's New York Times book review:

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/09/books/review/Oshinsky-t.html?ref=books

In a two-year stretch beginning in 1955, Knopf turned down manuscripts by
Jean-Paul Sartre, Mordecai Richler, and the historians A. J. P. Taylor and
Barbara Tuchman, not to mention Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita" (too racy) and
James Baldwin's "Giovanni's Room" ("hopelessly bad").
