In 1959, a writer by the name of Ed Zern was working and writing for Field & Stream magazine (which, if you aren't aware, is an American magazine about the outdoors--hunting, fishing, camping, etc.) when it was decided that they should add a book review section.
Mr. Zern was told to select a good book about the outdoors to review. Unbelievably, he selected Lady Chatterley's Lover, which of course had been banned in this country, and he wrote this review:
Although written many years ago, Lady Chatterley's Lover has just been reissued by Grove Press, and this fictional account of the day-by-day life of an English gamekeeper is still of considerable interest to outdoor-minded readers, as it contains many passages on pheasant-raising, the apprehending of poachers, ways to control vermin, and other chores and duties of the professional gamekeeper.
Unfortunately, one is obliged to wade through many pages of extraneous material in order to discover and savor these sidelights on the management of a Midland shooting estate, and in this reviewer's opinion the book cannot take the place of J. R. Miller's Practical Gamekeeper.
Yeah. And I bet Mr. Zern only bought Playboy for the articles.
I can't say that I was paying much attention to gamekeeping while watching Mr. Sean Bean in Lady Chatterley. You?
