Prison, Weed and Americana: A Krassner Primer

Who's to Say What's Obscene?: Politics, Culture, and Comedy in America TodayWho’s to Say What’s Obscene?: Politics, Culture, and Comedy in America Today by Paul Krassner

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Who’s to Say What’s Obscene?: Politics, Culture, and Comedy in America Today” is a book of satirical comedy. And the funniest part about it are the trust bits. “Trashing the right to read” is one such chapter. Books are routinely censored in prisons all over the world, and fairly rigorously in Japan as well. Krassner’s article let me have laughs about how real such inane behavior is by Justice authorities.

Many of Krassner’s books are already out of print. I could not find a copy of “The Best of the Realist” the last time I checked. “Who’s to Say What’s Obscene?: Politics, Culture, and Comedy in America Today” is a good primer that is easy to get your hands on to get a quick laugh on Prison, Weed, and Americana.
