25 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and Japanese and held by 250 libraries worldwide
"Here is the real story of the cult figure known as one of modern music’s true innovators. Following Don Van Vliet's death, Mike Barnes reassesses his legacy through new interview material and with reference to reports and eulogies that appeared in the media. The author also puts Van Vliet's reclusiveness over the last two decades in context, now that it has been officially revealed that he was suffering from MS (his friends and representatives had always denied that he had a long term illness). A unique in-depth look at a unique artist."--Publisher description

Calm jazz sea by Mike Barnes( Book )
5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 75 libraries worldwide
Shortlisted for the 1997 Gerald Lampert AwardThe poems in Calm Jazz Sea reveal a world forever becoming and disappearing, watched over and handled gently by the compassionate intelligence of Mike Barnes. In the everyday and the ephemeral meals, drinks, weather, work, moments of solitude or connection he finds ways to engage the secret matter of humanity: what horrifies, astonishes, or comforts us.
