Nancy Jane Moore reads Fanny Hill.

Fanny Hill, or, to use its official name, Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, is a classic among banned books. First published in 1748, and first banned in 1749, it has been a classic subject in the debate about banning books ever since.

In 1966 — more than 200 years after it was written — the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that it was not obscene and could be published in the United States. These days it’s probably on some college reading lists.
