Reviews

The prose swirls in graceful arcs that frequently rise to the level of poetry, leavened by mordant humor.... It's a powerful tale, stylishly told.--Michael Mewshaw
A remarkable feat: a clear-eyed, inventive, and astonishingly honest guided tour of hell.--Elissa Schappel
Flynn's authentic voice... holds us rapt, keeping both the tragic and the redemptive possibilities open.--Darren Reidy
[Flynn's] story is eerie testimony to the potent influence of an absent parent. But Nick, a poet, is too subtle a writer to say so outright, and instead lets us draw our own conclusions with a delicate, poetic logic.--Kate Bolick
Flynn has written a potent, distinctive autobiography.... Flynn's talents are considerable--he has a compelling voice and wry sense of humor, especially about himself.--Vendela Vida
In a perverse act of divine intervention, a life worth writing about was bestowed on a man actually able to write--in startling, beautiful, unsentimental prose.... It is crammed with beauty and wisdom, and everyone will love it.--Devin Friedman
