Abstract

It is difficult to believe that 50 years have passed since 260 advance copies of John McGahern’s second novel, The Dark, were seized by Irish Customs and Excise officers. The Censorship of Publications Board would deem that the novel posed a risk to public morality because of its “indecent or obscene” content.
