Suitable For Children?
Unleashed on July 13, 2009
The firestorm over Tender Morsels, the new book by Australian author Margo Lanagan, continues today in Eve’s Salmagundi Club. As we reported last Friday on Donna’s Write Report, many people are unhappy with the book’s highly explicit content. But… have they actually read it? Eve has – and as a children’s bookseller herself, she’s in the front line when it comes to questions of age and content. Eve thinks the book is far from the horrific catalog of rape, abortion, and incest that (to give but one example) that Danuta Keen believes it is in her article in Britain’s Daily Mail. It’s an important debate – be part of it by voicing your own comment below.
