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

Krassner is absolutely compelling. He has lived on the edge so long he gets his mail delivered there. -- San Francisco Chronicle

In this collection of irreverent and satirical essays, counterculture icon Paul Krassner explores the moral obscenity of contemporary politics and culture--from censorship of cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed to lessons learned from his mentor, Lenny Bruce.

Paul Krassner is the founding editor of The Realist. He currently writes for High Times, Adult Video News, The Huffington Post, and CounterPunch.
