Rage: O'Brien 'Girls in their Married Bliss' (1964)
It is no mystery why this novel was banned: the previous two novels in The Country Girls trilogy were also blacklisted. But in this short, punchy novel, O’Brien attacked many sacred cows.
- No Irish tourist board would promote a pushy brass-necked woman like Baba.
- Kate is married to one of the worst husbands in literature.
- The sex scene is an extended commentary on gender, kink, sex education and homosexuality. And electric blankets.
