The girl on the Via Flaminia by Alfred Hayes( Book )

59 editions published between 1949 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adapted from his best seller. Here is a merciless picture of hardened American conquerors abroad and their impact on pitifully defenseless people. A young American soldier takes on a pretty, fearful Italian girl to while away the tedious occupation. She consents with deep bitterness and restraint; the only jobs and bread are in the American kitchens. The country's pride is fiercely moral and the girl is stigmatized by the local police and populace. This is her final, mortal shame and she runs off into the night. He follows her but is too late. In another times and place they might have truly loved one another."--Publisher's description
In love by Alfred Hayes( Book )

New York in the 1950s. A man on a barstool is telling a story about a woman he met in a bar, early married and soon divorced, her child farmed out to her parents, good-looking, if a little past her prime. They'd gone out, they'd grown close, but as far as he was concerned it didn't add up to much. He was a busy man. Then one day, out dancing, she runs into a rich awkward lovelorn businessman. He'll pay for her to be his, pay her a lot. And now the narrator discovers that he is as much in love with her as she is with him, perhaps more, though it will take him a while to realize just how utterly lost he is

Stephen Kumalo, a black South African minister searches the unfamiliar back alleys and shanty towns of Johannesburg for his son, Absalom. But Kumalo's unwavering faith is put to the test when he finds Absalom in jail facing a capital murder charge. Courage, dignity and sacrifice fall prey to the whirlwind of racist hypocrisy and hollow justice in Absalom's trial. Absalom's reunion and reconciliation with this father, his jailhouse marriage to his pregnant sweetheart, and his heroic determination to tell the truth set the stage for a tragic climax
My face for the world to see by Alfred Hayes( Book )

33 editions published between 1958 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My face for the world to see is set in Hollywood, where the tonic for anonymity is fame and you're only as real as your image. At a party, the narrator, a screenwriter, rescues a young woman who staggers with drunken determination into the Pacific. He is living far from his wife in New York and long ago shed any illusions about the value of his work. He just wants to be left alone. And yet without really meaning to, he gets involved with the young woman, who has, it seems, no illusions about love, especially with married men. She's a survivor, even if her beauty is a little battered from years of not quite making it in the pictures. She's just like him, he thinks, and as their casual relationship takes on an increasingly troubled and destructive intensity, it seems that might just be true, only not in the way he supposes -- Back cover
