Reviews

"Nick Flynn's poems are gritty and emotional, grim and loving, funny and also about death and addiction and grief. I can't wait to sleep with this volume under my pillow."--Literary Hub

"Each poem is a compelling dynamic where language is shattered and rebuilt to convey truths that are haunting and beautiful. Nobody bends a lyric the way Flynn does to break the heart."--Washington Independent Review of Books

"Nick Flynn's fifth collection of poems is riveting, the verses scalding in their passion. . . . I Will Destroy You is a superb book."--Shelf Awareness

"Beautifully crafted poems from the (broken) heart; the masterly Flynn doesn't drag us into the depths but rises to meet us."--Library Journal

"What is there to say when a book is such absolute perfection--beauty, grief, and redemption--that it literally takes all words and air from the mouth?"--Jacqueline Woodson

"To read these poems is to reach in and touch the scar, the feigned wound, put trust in what may, at any moment, show its teeth, bite, transmogrify into dissolution, deception, destruction and, yes, love.'"--Nuar Alsadir

"Nick Flynn, that charismatic horse thief, is up to it again. Standing this close. Whatever you have or had to lose (to win), he's already stolen and sold it. And yet you still (and so badly) want to hear from him, have him tell you how we (can) live."--Olena Kalytiak Davis
