Gunning for you: Frank Harris 'My Life and Loves' (1922)

Written by an old man reflecting on his life in sex, this notorious memoir was banned almost everywhere.

  • It’s nice to know I’m not the imagined reader of this book – wrong gender, wrong gonads
  • Harris thinks pandering to girl readers stripped English literature of its earthy Shakespearean soul
  • His curious yoking together of philosophy and porn isn’t always successful
