Sometimes a great notion : a novel by Ken Kesey( Book )
in Finnish and held by 4 libraries worldwide
The magnificent second novel from the legendary author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Sailor Song is a wild-spirited and hugely powerful tale of an Oregon logging clan. A bitter strike is raging in a small lumber town along the Oregon coast. Bucking that strike out of sheer cussedness are the Stampers: Henry, the fiercely vital and overpowering patriarch; Hank, the son who has spent his life trying to live up to his father; and Viv, who fell in love with Hank's exuberant machismo but now finds it wearing thin. And then there is Leland, Henry's bookish younger son, who returns to his family on a mission of vengeance - and finds himself fulfilling it in ways he never imagined. Out of the Stamper family's rivalries and betrayals Ken Kesey has crafted a novel with the mythic impact of Greek tragedy
Pinktoes : a novel by Chester B Himes( Book )
3 editions published between 1972 and 1993 in Finnish and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"Pinktoes," Chester Himes said, "is a term of indulgent affection applied to white women by Negro men, and sometimes conversely by Negro women to white men, but never adversely by either." In this rowdy work of fiction that debunks self-satisfied do-gooders, Himes satirizes social missionaries who preach uplift and promote specious causes. With Rabelaisian zest he portrays Mamie Mason, Harlem's most influential society matron, hosting desegregated sexual orgies, all for the advancement of harmony between the races. Just as eager as Mamie to bask in the favorable light of social justice are liberal whites who wish to be seen amid the "right people." Printed in Paris in 1962 because it was perhaps too confrontational for U.S. publishers, this sex farce is regarded as Himes's most daring work of fiction
Death of a hero by Richard Aldington( Book )
2 editions published in 1966 in Finnish and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"One of the great World War I antiwar novels--honest, chilling, and brilliantly satirical Based on the author's experiences on the Western Front, Richard Aldington's first novel, Death of a Hero, finally joins the ranks of Penguin Classics. Our hero is George Winterbourne, who enlists in the British Expeditionary Army during the Great War and gets sent to France. After a rash of casualties leads to his promotion through the ranks, he grows increasingly cynical about the war and disillusioned by the hypocrisies of British society. Aldington's writing about Britain's ignorance of the tribulations of its soldiers is among the most biting ever published. Death of a Hero vividly evokes the morally degrading nature of combat as it rushes toward its astounding finish."

My life and loves by Frank Harris( Book )
3 editions published between 1973 and 1992 in Finnish and held by 3 libraries worldwide
In My Life and Loves, Frank Harris attempted to give the world the most honest autobiography ever written. Outside the pages of fiction, no one has ever written more freely or completely about the most intimate affairs of his life. For this reason, My Life and Loves has long been banned in both England and America. Harris here gives us a portrait of his life and times which is extraordinary in its range of personal observations of public figures and public and literary events. It is even more extraordinary as a detailed revelation of the sex life of a man, from childhood to old age
