Barney Rosset, publishing provacateur and First Amendment champion, died on Tuesday at the age of 89. Rosset is best known for his numerous battles against censorship—he published Lady Chatterley’s Lover and Tropic of Cancer, and imported the X-rated Swedish film I Am Curious (Yellow)—and as the founder of the Evergreen Review.
