I'm wanting to wish for an old, OLD Henry Miller book called Insomnia: Or, the Devil at Large which doesn't have an ISBN number, only an AISN (or is it ASIN?) number.  I actually found an isbn on a book online, but when I search it, it comes up with some other book entirely, no idea why.  Anyway, do we have a forum here for posting books we're looking for but can't get on the big wish list of books?

THANKS, guys!

I was going to submit an edit for the book data but I can't find a book description to use. If you the book description it's about a boy and a dog and helicopters and kidnappings.  But the Henry James books is I'm assuming about his watercolors?  That's what it looks like when I googled it.  I just couldn't find an actual book description I could copy and paste.

Mary - I think that book description is for a book by Joshua Doder, A Dog Called Grk. The one the OP is referring to is about the artist.

ETA: All my library says is, "Includes the Insomnia watercolors by H. Miller."

If a book does not have an ISBN it is hard to wish for it -- I just do daily searches for a book such as that -- and they do pop up now and then.
