Another Bullshit Night in Suck City Summary


Another Bullshit Night in Suck City by Nick Flynn

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.

Another Bullshit Night in Suck City Reviews


"'What a piece of work. I don't usually like memoirs, but if they were all like Nick Flynn's - eloquent, funny, unsentimental, and bravely inventive - I'd read them by the truckload.' Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River; 'No one who reads Another Bullshit Night will ever walk through a city in the same way again.' Michael Cunningham"
