King : the photobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr. by Charles Johnson ( Book )
4 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 1,311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"King is the first true photobiography of a hero's journey. Never before has Martin Luther King's life been so richly chronicled from so many different points of view. A powerful array of photographic images combined with text by writer Charles Johnson, a National Book Award winner, detail the pivotal events of King's public life - as well as life with his family - in a rich and stirring format. Johnson writes, "How soon we forget that King was not only a civil rights activist, but also this country's preeminent moral philosopher, a spiritual aspirant, a father and husband, and that these diverse roles - these multiple dimensions of his too brief life - were the foundations for his singular 'dream' that inspired millions worldwide." Here, then, we see Martin Luther King, Jr., in all his aspects: as husband and father, powerful preacher, courageous leader of the civil rights movement, martyr for the cause of racial justice, and finally American icon."--BOOK JACKET

Carver country : the world of Raymond Carver by Raymond Carver ( Book )
18 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
American short story writer and poet Raymond Carver is considered one of the major influential American writers of the late twentieth century and a significant player in revamping the short story in the 1980s. He attended the prestigious Iowa Writer's Workshop at the University of Iowa and found a mentor in novelist John Gardner. As Carver and his family moved around the country, and he took various jobs, his alcoholism reached its peak. He lost his family and almost hit rock bottom before he had a "rebirth" and quit the dangerous habit in 1977. This new life led him to poet Tess Gallagher with whom he spent the rest of his short life. In Carver Country, Raymond Carver's gritty text is combined with Bob Adelman's stunning and bare-boned photographs of Carver's people and haunts to re-create the world of this famously minimalistic writer--a man tormented by his own demons, who used his creativity and the atmosphere around him to cope with the world. Together the text and photographs bring to life the bleak blue-collar towns and people that become a great inspiration for much of Carver's writings. 113 black-and-white photographs --- Book Description
