Viper rum by Mary Karr( Book )

4 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In her first book since "The Liar's Club", Karr delves into the autobiographical subject matter of her two early collections.

Exact and surprising, her poems "take on the bedevilments of fate and grief with a diabolical edge of their own" ("Poetry")
Now go out there (and get curious) by Mary Karr( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every year there are one or two commencement speeches that strike a chord with audiences far greater than the student bodies for which they are intended. In 2015 Mary Karr's speech to the graduating class of Syracuse University caught fire, hailed across the Internet as one of the most memorable in recent years, and lighting up the Twittersphere. In Now Go Out There, Karr explains why having your heart broken is just as-if not more-important than falling in love; why getting what you want often scares you more than not getting it; how those experiences that appear to be the worst cannot be so easily categorized; and how to cope with the setbacks that inevitably befall all of us. "Don't make the mistake of comparing your twisted up insides to other people's blow-dried outsides," she cautions. "Even the most privileged person in this stadium suffers the torments of the damned just going about the business of being human." An ideal-and beautifully designed-gift for a graduate or for anyone looking for some down-to-earth life advice, Now Go Out There is destined to become a classic"--Jacket

The Texas refinery town of Leechfield, perched on the swampy rim of the Gulf, is famous for mosquitoes and the manufacture of Agent Orange -- a place where the only bookstores are religious ones and the restaurants serve only fried food. A handful of the Leechfield oil workers gather regularly at the American Legion Bar to drink salted beer and spin long, improbable tales. They're the Liars' Club. And to the girl whose father is the club's undisputed champion mythmaker, they exude a fatal glamour -- one that lifts her from ordinary life
