"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 "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 "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 "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 "Told with energy, critical reflection and sensitivity, ?Another Bullshit Night in Suck City? is less a memoir than a study of one of America's darker conundrums: homelessness." -- Thomas Curwen "[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 "Unlike the pity parties that too many memoirs have become, ?Night ?has no maudlin gestures, no 'inspirational' tones, no hysterics; it stares down emptiness with clear, dry eyes." -- Troy Patterson
Another Bullshit Night in Suck City by Nick Flynn is a dark but humorous memoir, recounting with a raw authenticity and playful prose the eerie trajectory that carried Flynn into the homeless shelter in which he met his father - for the first time.
