Most widely held works by Katherine Anne Porter
Ship of fools by Katherine Anne Porter( Book )
87 editions published between 1932 and 2015 in 17 languages and held by 4,134 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.

The leaning tower, and other stories by Katherine Anne Porter( Book )

Incomparable in their dramatic clarity and emotional force, the nine gems in this 1944 collection, now available in an exclusive Library of America e-book edition, affirm Katherine Anne Porter's genius for writing stories, as Eudora Welty observed, "with a power that stamps them to their very last detail on the memory."
The days before by Katherine Anne Porter( Book )
22 editions published between 1952 and 1971 in English and held by 1,134 libraries worldwide
Conversations with Katherine Anne Porter, refugee from Indian Creek by Enrique Hank Lopez( Book )
6 editions published between 1981 and 1984 in English and Japanese and held by 1,127 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

Interspersed with photographs of Porter from the years and places in which she composed the poems, the volume features a substantial critical and biographical essay in which Unrue explains the significance of individual poems and details the relationship between Porter's poetry and fiction. Unrue describes Porter's verse as an index to the stages of her developing intellectual thought and, in some cases, an intermediate phase in a creative process that began with random notes and letters and culminated in fiction
