Crossroads and unholy water by Marilene Phipps( )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marilene Phipps's poetry invites the reader to share sharp slices of Caribbean experience: Haiti is both stage and backdrop for people who move in various strata of the social scheme and through the three stages of life, in lieu of answers to the Sphinx's riddle. Through voices, nostalgic and tender, denouncing and shrill, we journey to a mythologizing Caribbean land populated with people whose dramatic intensity and fights for life are turned into sometimes funny, sometimes disquieting, and always richly evocative, palpable poetry
The company of heaven : stories from Haiti by Marilene Phipps-Kettlewell( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marilène Phipps-Kettlewell's award-winning stories transport you to Haiti-to a lush, lyrical, flamboyant, and spirit-filled Haiti where palm trees shine wet with moonlight and the sky paints a yellow screen over your head and the ocean sparkles with thousands of golden eyes-and keep you there forever.

Collected poems by Jack Kerouac( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poetry was at the center of Jack Kerouac's sense of mission as a writer. This landmark edition brings together for the first time all Kerouac's major poetic works--Mexico City Blues, The Scripture of the Golden Eternity, Book of Blues, Poems All Sizes, Old Angel Midnight, Book of Haikus--along with a rich assortment of his uncollected poems, six published here for the first time.

Many poets found Kerouac a liberating influence on their work: Robert Creeley called him "a genius at the register of the speaking voice"; for Allen Ginsberg he was "a poetic influence over the entire planet"; and Bob Dylan said that Mexico City Blues was crucial to his own artistic development
