About the Author

NICK FLYNN's work--which includes Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, winner of the PEN/Martha Albrand Award for Memoir, and the poetry collections Blind Huber and Some Ether--has been translated into thirteen languages.

Reviews
Flynn's determination to better understand his life through the act of writing and remembering has yielded a truly insightful, original work.
Maybe only poets should be allowed to write memoirs, because they know that our perception is partial, our recollection is worse, and the world is made of shards and fragments that make patterns, but leave gaps and sharp edges.
