Re: VNbib

Another article on this same website starts as follows:

"Playboy recently named the twenty-five sexiest novels ever written. The list of works “famous for being dirty books for decades” includes Norman Mailer’s An American Dream (Dial Press, 1965), Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer (Obelisk Press, 1934), Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita (Olympia Press, 1955), and Philip Roth’s Portnoy’s Complaint (Random House, 1969). Covers, excerpts, and brief histories of the books on the list are available on the magazine’s Web site. "
