Appointment in Samarra BY OHara, John

John O’Hara, Appointment in Samarra (banned 1935–1954)

Apparently the novel caused a stir in the town in which O'Hara lived, and upon which the novel was based.. as follows:
After O'Hara's documenting of the class structure and its particulars in Gibbsville (Pottsville) in Appointment in Samarra, the novel 'was banned' in Schuylkill County by the churces and, ultimately, the upper classes. The reason why it 'was banned' in this county was not just due to its sexual content, but because of its portrayal of various upper-class families in the county seat, Pottsville.
