Lady Chatterley´s Lover by D.H. Lawrence, first published in 1928. Lawrence’s novel attracted attention due to its use of words deemed “unpublishable”, as well as the taboo topic of inter-class sex. 
It wasn’t until 1960 that an unexpurgated copy was sold in the UK, and that was the basis for an obscenity trial. In Australia, not only was the book banned, but a book about the trial of the banning of the book was banned too.

& then, in a strange, grey hour, we lay mouth to mouth, with your face under mine like a star on the lake, & I covered the earth, & all space // D. H. Lawrence
