15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Kurt Cobain died by his own hand in April 1994, it was an act of will that typified his short, angry, inspired life. Veteran music journalist Charles R. Cross fuses his intimate knowledge of the Seattle music scene with his deep compassion for his subject in this extraordinary story of artistic brilliance and the pain that extinguished it. Based on more than four hundred interviews, four years of research, and exclusive access to Cobain's unpublished diaries, lyrics, and family photos, Heavier than Heaven traces Cobain's life from his early days in a double-wide trailer outside of Aberdeen, Washington, to his rise to fame, success, and the adulation of a generation

Brown dog : novellas by Jim Harrison( Recording )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of all Jim Harrison's creations, Brown Dog--a bawdy, reckless, down-on-his-luck Michigan Indian--has earned cult status with readers in the more than two decades since his first appearance. For the first time, Brown Dog gathers all the Brown Dog novellas, including one never before published, into one volume. In these novellas, BD rescues the preserved body of an Indian from Lake Superior's cold waters; overindulges in food, drink, and women while just scraping by in Michigan's Upper Peninsula; wanders Los Angeles in search of an ersatz Native activist who stole his bearskin; adopts two Native children; and flees the authorities then returns across the Canadian border aboard an Indian rock band's tour bus. The collection culminates with "He Dog," never before published, which finds BD marginally employed and still looking for love (or sometimes just a few beers and a roll in the hay) as he goes on a road trip from Michigan to Montana and back, arriving home to the prospect of family stability, and, perhaps, a chance at redemption

Give me tomorrow : [the Korean war's greatest untold story--the epic stand of the marines of George company] by Patrick K O'Donnell( )

17 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If I were God, what would you want for Christmas?" With a thousand-yard stare, a haggard and bloodied marine looked incredulously at the war correspondent who asked him this question. In an answer that took "almost forever," the marine responded, "Give me tomorrow." After nearly four months of continuous and bloody combat in Korea, such a wish seemed impossible. For many of the men of George Company, or "Bloody George"--One of the Forgotten War's most decorated yet unrecognized companies-this would be their last day. This is the epic story of George Company, Spartans for the modern age. After storming ashore at Inchon and fighting house-to-house in Seoul, America's last reserve unit found itself on the frozen tundra of the Chosin Reservoir facing an entire division of Chinese troops. Little did this small band of men-green troops who had been rushed through training to bring fresh forces to the war-know they would soon be saviors. This is their story, and it will never again be forgotten

And finally, in the concluding story, a retired werewolf, misdiagnosed with a rare blood disorder brought on by the bite of a Mexican hummingbird, attempts to lead a normal life but is nevertheless plagued by hazy, feverish episodes of epic lust, physical appetite, athletic exertions, and outbursts of violence under the full moon
