Ship of fools by Katherine Anne Porter( Book )

210 editions published between 1874 and 2019 in 20 languages and held by 4,443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story takes place in the summer of 1931, on board a cruise ship bound for Bremerhaven, Germany. The passenger list is long and portentous, and includes a Spanish noblewoman, a drunken German lawyer, an American divorcee, a pair of Mexican Catholic priests, and a host of others. This ship of fools is a crucible of intense experience, out of which everyone emerges forever changed. Rich in incident, passion, and treachery, the novel explores themes of nationalism, cultural and ethnic pride, and basic human frailty that are as relevant now as they were when the novel first appeared in 1962. --Amazon.com

Conversations with Katherine Anne Porter, refugee from Indian Creek by Enrique Hank Lopez( Book )

7 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 1,071 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the story of a life as its holder perceived it. Here is the life, as she recalled it, of a great writer of fiction, of Ship of Fools, of "Leaning Tower," of the miraculous Miranda stories. Her fiction came so much from her life, from her observations, from her insecurities, fears and obsessions, that sometimes it is difficult to find the line between the fiction and the life. It was apparently so for her as well, as is clear in the Miranda stories and in her autobiographical recollections of her mother's death (see page 3). The lines between the life of the imagination and the life of Katherine Anne Porter blurred and melded. The result is in your hands. It is not unlike the notebooks of a psychoanalyst, I presume, in that there is here the revelation of the life perceived by the subject, not always the life that was led. In any event, I hope this presents a balanced view of the world of Katherine Anne Porter. - Author's note
