9780571214082: Another Bullshit Night in Suck City

[This is the Audiobook CASSETTE Library Edition in vinyl case.]

**This bestselling memoir is set to become a major motion picture titled Being Flynn, starring Robert De Niro, Julianne Moore, and Paul Dano, scheduled for release in 2012**

With a raw authenticity stripped of self-pity and a powerful narrative voice unlike any other, Another Bullshit Night in Suck City illuminates the hidden story of fathers and sons in America. Nick Flynn has written a remarkable testament to the enduring strength of one boy's struggle for survival.

''Sometimes I'd see my father, walking past my building on his way to another nowhere. I could have given him a key, offered a piece of my floor. But if I let him inside the line between us would blur, my own slow-motion car wreck would speed up.''

Nick met his father when he was working as a caseworker in a homeless shelter in Boston. As a teenager, he'd received letters from this stranger, a self-proclaimed poet and con man doing time in federal prison for bank robbery. Another Bullshit Night in Suck City tells the story of the trajectory that led Nick and his father onto the streets, into that shelter, and finally, to each other.

Review:

''What a piece of work . . . eloquent, funny, unsentimental, and bravely inventive.'' -- Dennis Lehane, New York Times bestselling author of Mystic River and Shutter Island

''Nick Flynn's devastating memoir does what only significant works of art can do -- it shows us a world we know, but fail to see or understand. No one who reads Another Bullshit Night in Suck City will ever walk through a city in the same way again. If I say that Flynn's book ranks with Frank Conroy's Stop-Time, I mean it as the highest possible praise.'' -- Michael Cunningham, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Hours

''[A] stunningly beautiful new memoir. . . A near-perfect work of literature.'' --San Francisco Chronicle

''Tough as nails and tender as a bruise, Flynn's muscular, poetic language renders this hard-knock tale transcendent.'' -- Washington Post

''Flynn's talents are considerable -- he has a compelling voice and a wry sense of humor, especially about himself.'' -- New York Times

''My favorite book of the past few years, and the best memoir since Stop-Time, This Boy's Life, and Liar's Club.'' --Chris Offutt, author of Kentucky Straight

''Ultimately, this book is an artful meditation on how we decide how much we are limited or enhanced by what we inherit, and on how difficult it is to give and receive care in this world.'' -- New York Times Book Review

''Punchy language. . . The book never seems hopeless, because readers know the author has succeeded at doing what his father only pretended to do: write, and write well. -- Publishers Weekly

''Likely one of the best books you will read. . . Hilarious and heartbreaking by turns, it has been compared to Conroy's Stop-Time and David Eggers's A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, but is really in a class by itself. Highly recommended. --Library Journal

Descripción FABER FABER, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Main. Language: English . Brand New Book. Nick Flynn met his father when he was twenty-seven years old, working as a caseworker in a homeless shelter in Boston. As a teenager he d received letters from this mystery father - self-proclaimed poet (and greatest American novelist since Mark Twain), descendant of the Romanov dynasty, alcoholic, and con-man doing time for bank robbery - but there had been no contact. Another Bullshit Night in Suck City (a phrase Flynn senior uses to describe his life on the streets) tells the story of the eerie trajectory that led Nick and his father into that homeless shelter, onto those streets, and finally to each other. With a raw authenticity, telling honesty and a dark but necessary humour, Nick Flynn s memoir breathes new life and vigour into the form. In passionate and playful prose Another Bullshit Night in Suck City illuminates the emotional and physical consequences of a relationship between father and son that exists, if at all, in a void.
