In 1966, The Love Book was banned and seized similarly to how Allen Ginsberg's Howl was treated almost a decade earlier. The ban on Howl was overturned at trial and the book can be found at any bookstore; the ban on The Love Book was upheld for 8 years, and the book was never reprinted until now. Kandel was threatened with arrest if she read her poems at the University of New Mexico, where an assistant English professor defied the ban and gave the poems to his class to read. She read anyway, and the audience was so supportive that the cops were afraid to arrest her, for fear of sparking a riot. She read at the infamous San Francisco Be-in, sharing the stage with Jefferson Airplane.
She was immortalized in Kerouac'sBig Sur as "Romana Schwartz".
