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."--

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
