Censorship notes: The board's report states that '...it was generally agreed that there were sections of the novel where Sam's descriptions of her sex experiences were delivered with a grossness of expression that went beyond community acceptance. It was this feature that led the board to recommend prohibition.'
Censorship notes: The book was released at a cyclical review on 29.07.1973.
