Slaughterhouse-five by George Roy Hill( Visual )

5 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Billy Pilgrim has become unstuck in time. An otherwise typical soldier in WWII, without warning, he jumps back and forth in his life with no control over where he is going next. Sometimes he is an ophthalmologist at home in suburbia; deep in World War II Europe, surviving the Allied bombing of Dresden; on the planet Tralfamadore, being held captive by aliens in an intergalactic zoo--accompanied by a porn star. In the end, he learns that the many tragic and sometimes funny ironies of life--the randomness of tragedy, the cruelty and senselessness of war, and man's complete lack of control over his fate--remain constant

"Ronnie Gilbert has had a long and colorful career as a singer, actor, activist, therapist, and independent woman of her times. She is best known for her time with the Weavers in the 1940s and '50s, but she went on to collaborate with many other musicians--notably Holly Near and Arlo Guthrie--as well as to write and appear on stage in numerous productions, including her own play, Mother Jones. Ronnie Gilbert traverses sixty years of the twentieth century, sharing her take on the folk-music revival, the Cold War blacklist, the 1960s music scene, and primal therapy. Ronnie Gilbert is a unique historical document for readers interested in music, American politics, and the history of the women's movement and the Left"--Provided by publisher
