Description - Strange Fruit by Lillian Smith

When it was first published in 1944, this novel with a curious title - taken from a Billie Holiday song about a lynching - sparked immediate controversy: It horrified some critics, prompted booksellers in Boston and Detroit to ban its sale, caused the U.S. postal service to seize copies, and tempted the public enough to make it the years's No. 1 fiction best-seller.

Buy Strange Fruit by Lillian Smith from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
