        I have another version upstairs, but I have never read “the first uncensored edition”.

        I’m going to read that one. Now, of course, I doubt that we’re talking about something like “WITH 50 NEVER BEFORE SEEN PAGES!!!” as much as “we’ve got a handful of paragraphs in this one that weren’t in previous ones”. It’ll probably be the parts of the book that talk about Stalin, if I had to guess and I’m pretty sure that I won’t mind talking about the stuff that I recognize as being in the new version.

        If you (or anybody!!!) prefer the version in your local library, get that one. The reason I’m excited to be reading this again is because of the censored version. You’ll be just as well-served by that one.Report

          Well, I ordered the uncensored version, scant moments ago, so I am with you on that.

          Normally, I do most of my book buying at library sales and thrift stores, but as that can be hit or miss, I figured let Jaybird do the walking…Report

    i’ve read the original–it was good. don’t have time to participate this time, but I’m interested in how the “new” version differs. My old copy has 500+ pages. Solzy can get his ramble on.Report
