A Clockwork Orange has faced book banning attempts due to the sexual violence it depicts. In 1973, a bookseller in Orem, Utah was arrested for selling the novel. The author argues that if one can only perform good or only perform evil, then he is a clockwork orange—meaning that he has the appearance of an organism lovely with color and juice but is in fact only a clockwork toy to be wound up by God or the Devil. If you are a collector of banned books, this classic novel is one of you will want in your library.
