Dawn over zero : the story of the atomic bomb by William Leonard Laurence( Book )

This is the full story, so far as it may yet be revealed, of the atom bomb, written by the man who is unquestionably the best qualified to write it for the layman...Mr. Laurence was, to quote his own newspaper, "the only newspaperman permitted by the War Department to go to all the plants and inspect the processed of production to the atomic bomb, the only [one] allowed to witness the secret trial of the bomb in New Mexico, and the only [one] who witnessed the actual dropping of one of the bombs on Japan from a plane above Nagasaki." -- Taken from the book jacket

The lower depths by Maksim Gorky( Book )

5 editions published in 1930 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Widely regarded as Gorky's dramatic masterpiece, The Lower Depths reveals the author's unrivaled knowledge of the Russian proletariat. A sleazy boarding house is home to a group of wretched souls who spend their days arguing, playing cards, telling stories and debating the merits of two different views of life: whether it is better to live without illusions on one's own strengths, or to harbor a romanticized view of the world in order to shield oneself from the pain of daily life. Gorky's eye for physical detail, and special talent for breathing life into down-and-out characters on the fringes of society, are brilliantly displayed in this compelling drama
