Tobacco road by Erskine Caldwell( Book )

6 editions published between 1957 and 1988 in Japanese and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A tale of violence and sex among rural poor in the American South, the novel was highly controversial in its time. It is the story of Georgia sharecropper Jeeter Lester and his family, who are trapped by the bleak economic conditions of the Depression as well as by their own limited intelligence and destructive sexuality. Its tragic ending is almost foreordained by the characters' inability to change their lives. Caldwell's skillful use of dialect and his plain style made the book one of the best examples of literary naturalism in contemporary American fiction. The novel was adapted as a successful play in 1933

In cold blood by Truman Capote( Book )

3 editions published between 1967 and 1978 in Japanese and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Until one morning in mid-November of 1959, few Americans--in fact, few Kansans--had ever heard of Holcomb. Like the waters of the river, like the motorists on the highway, and like the yellow trains streaking down the Santa Fe tracks, drama, in the shape of exceptional happenings, had never stopped there." If all Truman Capote did was invent a new genre--journalism written with the language and structure of literature--this "nonfiction novel" about the brutal slaying of the Clutter family by two would-be robbers would be remembered as a trail-blazing experiment that has influenced countless writers. But Capote achieved more than that. He wrote a true masterpiece of creative nonfiction. The images of this tale continue to resonate in our minds: 16-year-old Nancy Clutter teaching a friend how to bake a cherry pie, Dick Hickock's black '49 Chevrolet sedan, Perry Smith's Gibson guitar and his dreams of gold in a tropical paradise--the blood on the walls and the final "thud-snap" of the rope-broken necks

The snows of Kilimanjaro by Ernest Hemingway( Book )

4 editions published between 1953 and 1994 in Japanese and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These early Hemingway stories are in part autobiographical and realistic. Men and women of passion and action live, fight, love and die in scenes of dramatic intensity. From haunting tragedy on the snowcapped peak of Kilimanjaro to brutal sensationalism in the bullring; from rural America with its deceptive calm to the heart of war-ravaged Europe, each of the stories in this collection is a feat of imagination
