In Unclean Lips: Obscenity, Jews, and American Culture, Josh Lambert navigates us through American Jews’ participation in the production, distribution, and defense of sexually explicit literature, plays and comedy.
From Theodore Dreiser and Henry Miller to Curb Your Enthusiasm and FCC v. Fox, Lambert explores the central role Jews have played in the struggles over obscenity and censorship in the modern United States.
