About the Author

Nick Flynn has worked as a ship's captain, an electrician, and a caseworker for homeless adults. Some of the venues his poems, essays, and nonfiction have appeared in include the New Yorker, the Nation, the Paris Review, the New York Times Book Review, and NPR's This American Life. His writing has won awards from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Library of Congress, PEN, and the Fine Arts Work Center, among other organizations. His film credits include artistic collaborator and "field poet" on Darwin's Nightmare (nominated for an Academy Award for best feature documentary in 2006), as well as executive producer and artistic collaborator on Being Flynn, the film version of his memoir Another Bullshit Night in Suck City. His most recent collection of poetry, I Will Destroy You, appeared from Graywolf Press in 2019. He is part of the creative writing faculty at the University of Houston, where each spring he teaches workshops in poetry, creative nonfiction, and interdisciplinary art. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, Lili Taylor, and his daughter, Maeve. His work has been translated into fifteen languages.


"Personally, this book came to me when I needed it and detangled some of the loose threads balled up in my mind. This book is a self-portrait, a collaboration, and a piece of art. This book is essential." --Ali Hintz, Arkansas International
"One of the pleasures of a book like Stay is its ability (rather, its capacity) to surprise...That's the beautiful thing about a book like Stay the juxtaposition, the play between art forms, and how it allows room for experience, opens up space to sit and feel." --Brock Kingsley, Chicago Review of Books
"Over the course of a year, [Flynn] will have released three books...Stay feels like the glue that brings them all together."--Licia Morelli, Vanity Fair
"Stay [is] a kaleidoscopic self-portrait that combines Massachusetts native Flynn's writing, photography, and collage with visual art from dozens of collaborators and influences and friends."--Kate Tuttle, The Boston Globe
