Summary
Obelisk : A History of Jack Kahane and the Obelisk Press tells the story of one of the twentieth century?s most extraordinary publishing enterprises. Censor-baiting and provocative, a publisher of?dirty books? as well as those of the literary elite, Jack Kahane?s Obelisk Press was the first publisher of the early work of Henry Miller, Lawrence Durrell and Anaïs Nin, and its roster of authors also included James Joyce, D.H. Lawrence, Richard Aldington and Cyril Connolly. Kahane subsidised his highbrow literary endeavours by pumping out cheap erotica, trash fiction produced by long-forgotten eccentrics such as New York Daily News' Rome correspondent and self-styled 'Marco Polo of Sex' N. Reynolds Packard
