Book banning delights author

Jerrold Mundis, author of the book Slave Ship that was banned in Australia in 1971, emailed Mosman Library after finding himself featured in Round 1 of our search engine challenge.

“Damn, I wish someone would have told me back then when it happened. I could have enjoyed it through all of these past nearly forty years.

“Well, at least I have the satisfaction of it now.”

Mr Mundis – who describes himself as “a pussycat, really” – said he was delighted to find out that his book had been banned in Australia and was keen to read what the censors had to say.

Naturally, we accessed AustLit for him! This database is available free from Mosman Library PCs.
