Summary:

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.

Summary:

Nick Flynn n'avait pas connu son père. Ce dernier, écrivain sans œuvre un brin mythomane. menait une vie de bohème, tandis que son fils, lui-même apprenti poète, traversait une jeunesse instable. Jusqu'à leur rencontre dans un asile pour SDF de Boston. Les souvenirs affluent alors, en désordre, à l'image d'un roman familial chaotique mais aussi d'une méditation poétique sur la filiation. Sans apitoiement, dans une langue fulgurante, Nick Flynn use tour à tour de toutes les formes littéraires pour cerner enfin la mythique figure paternelle, dans l'espoir de donner ordre et sens à sa propre vie. Cette entreprise héroïque, à la portée universelle, devient ainsi un acte de foi dans la grandeur de la littérature.

Summary:

A searing memoir from critically acclaimed author Nick Flynn, on how childhood spills into parenthood. When Nick Flynn was seven years old, his mother set fire to their house. The event loomed large in his imagination for years, but it’s only after having a child of his own that he understands why. He returns with his young daughter to the landscape of his youth, reflecting on how his feral childhood has him still in its reins, and forms his memories into lyrical bedtime stories populated by the both sinister and wounded Mister Mann. With the spare lyricism and dark irony of his classic, Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, Flynn excavates the terrain of his traumatic upbringing and his mother’s suicide. This Is the Night Our House Will Catch Fire unravels the story of the fire that Flynn had to escape, and the ways in which, as an adult, he has carried that fire with him until it threatens to burn down his own house. Here Nick confronts his failings with fierce candor, even as they threaten to tear his family apart. His marriage in crisis, Flynn seeks answers from his therapist, who tells him he has “the ethics of a drowning man.” This Is the Night Our House Will Catch Fire takes us on the journey of a man struggling to hold himself together in prose that is raw and moving, sharp-edged and wry. Alternating literary analysis and philosophy with intimate memoir, Flynn probes his deepest ethical dilemmas.

Summary:

Un cri dans le désert est une évocation poétique du chemin qui conduit le narrateur de l'enfance à la maturité. Le père de Frank, un charmant alcoolique, se consacrait aux cures de désintoxication ; sa mère était danoise, intéressée, sensuelle et sotte. Après un séjour dans un pensionnat prétendument expérimental où il découvre la brutalité collective, Frank connaît une période édénique dans les bois de pins en Floride. Plus tard, un étrange été au Danemark, l'expérience de la vie de bohème parisienne et un séjour dans une université américaine donnent au héros le sentiment d'être enfin maître de son avenir. C'est alors que, devenu écrivain, il s'établit en Angleterre. Mais au cœur de l'adulte, le nid de vipères de ses souvenirs d'enfance le pousse à risquer sa vie. La mort le frôle. Sera-t-elle une délivrance ? Parfois la tempête du jazz s'arrête ou se réduit à une pulsation de l'orchestre à l'arrière-plan. Alors s'élève une voix : le chant d'un instrument. Ainsi, dans le livre de Frank Conroy, la voix des souvenirs remonte et obsède l'homme ; elle le pousse sur les routes anglaises dans un déchaînement de vitesse.

Summary:

Dans ce récit autobiographique fort troublant, Toni Bentley, ancienne danseuse étoile, nous conte les joies du " holy fuck ", la sodomie qui enseigne l'absolu abandon. Au-delà de son aspect profondément érotique, cette longue offrande, cette confession d'une incroyable liberté épouse la forme d'une somptueuse lettre d'amour et de gratitude, adressée à A-Man, l'homme par excellence qui, 298 fois en deux ans, révéla l'extase mystique à l'auteur. En la pénétrant " religieusement ", A-Man lui procure une jouissance qui la vide de son moi, expérience qui la mène, au cours de rituels soigneusement orchestrés, aux confins du plaisir absolu.

Summary:

Winner of a "Discovery"/The Nation Award Winner of the 1999 PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award for Poetry Some Ether is one of the more remarkable debut collections of poetry to appear in America in recent memory. As Mark Doty has noted, "these poems are more than testimony; in lyrics of ringing clarity and strange precision, Flynn conjures a will to survive, the buoyant motion toward love which is sometimes all that saves us. Some Ether resonates in the imagination long after the final poem; this is a startling, moving debut."

Summary:

"Science claims it will one day be able to eliminate fathers from the equation by mating bone marrow with ovum. When that day comes, I imagine this book, along with a handful of other works (King Lear, Fun Home) will become even more necessary. Herein find the blueprints for the mystery, the maps for the uncharted, the keys to the archetype." —Nick Flynn, author of The Reenactments and Another Bullshit Night in Suck City "At this moment, I find myself at loose ends, lost in the various vacuums left by my father's dying and my sons' departures out into the voids. Yet this stunning constellation of essays centered me, became for me fine instruments of reckoning of where to stand in the ceaseless entropic dynamic of kin, of paternal keening. These waxing meditations demonstrate the inflationary universe, the heft and velocity of that big ol' nothing. They elegantly fill, with sober hope and the balm of joy, the terrifying, infinite spaces between those waning stars." —Michael Martone, author of Michael Martone and Four for a Quarter "What an unreachable mystery the father is, preoccupied, unknowable, pervasive. In these fascinating essays, a shared portrait emerges as writers articulate the perpetual puzzle of the father and, with grace and candor, explore what it means to not know him, to never know him. As one voice, these essays investigate the man—his inventories, his myths, his mere traces—who makes up our horizons, who forever shimmers there beyond our collective grasp." —Susanna Sonnenberg, author of Her Last Death and She Matters: A Life in Friendships Selected from the country's leading literary journals and publications—Crazyhorse, Colorado Review, The Nervous Breakdown, Creative Nonfiction, Georgia Review, Gulf Coast, The Missouri Review, The Normal School, and others—Man in the Moon brings together essays in which sons, daughters, and fathers explore the elusive nature of this intimate relationship and find unique ways to frame and understand it: through astronomy, arachnology, storytelling, map-reading, television, puzzles, DNA, and so on. In the collection's title essay, Bill Capossere considers the inextricable link between his love of astronomy and memories of his father: "The man in the moon is no stranger to me,” he writes. "I have seen his face before, and it is my father's, and his father's, and my own.” Other essays include Dinty Moore's "Son of Mr. Green Jeans: A Meditation on Missing Fathers,” in which Moore lays out an alphabetic investigation of fathers from popular culture—Ward Cleaver, Jim Anderson, Ozzie Nelson—while ruminating on his own absent father and hesitation to become a father himself. In "Plot Variations,” Robin Black attempts to understand, through the lens of teaching fiction to creative writing students, her inability to attend her father's funeral. Deborah Thompson tries to reconcile her pride in her father's pioneering research in plastics and her concerns about their toxic environmental consequences in "When the Future Was Plastic.” At turns painfully familiar, comic, and heartbreaking, the essays in this collection also deliver moments of seari

Summary:

A daring and intimate new book by the poet and memoirist Nick Flynn, "a champion of contemporary American poetry" (Newpages) . . . the take from his bank jobs, all of it will come to me, if I can just get him to draw me a map, if I can find the tree, if I can find the shovel. And the house, the mansion he grew up in, soon a lawyer will pass a key across a walnut desk, but even this lawyer will not be able to tell me where this mansion is. —from "Kafka" In My Feelings, Nick Flynn makes no claims on anyone else's. These poems inhabit a continually shifting sense of selfhood, in the attempt to contain quicksilver realms of emotional energy—from grief and panic to gratitude and understanding.

Summary:

New poetry by the acclaimed writer Nick Flynn, author of Another Bullshit Night in Suck City and The Ticking Is the Bomb electrocution, no—the boy stood in the hot-hot room stammering I did stammering I did stammering I did stammering I did stammering everything you say I did I did. —from "Fire" The Captain Asks for a Show of Hands is Nick Flynn's first new poetry collection in nearly a decade. What begins as a meditation on love and the body soon breaks down into a collage of voices culled from media reports, childhood memories, testimonies from Abu Ghraib detainees, passages from documentary films, overheard conversations, and scraps of poems and song, only to reassemble with a gathering sonic force. It's as if all the noise that fills our days were a storm, yet at the center is a quiet place, but to get there you must first pass through the storm, with eyes wide open, singing. Each poem becomes a hallucinatory, shifting experience, through jump cut, lyric persuasion, and deadpan utterance. This is an emotional, resilient response to some of the essential issues of our day by one of America's riskiest and most innovative writers.

Summary:

Un premier roman largement autobiographique, écrit pour exorciser une enfance brûlée.. En Caroline du Sud, les étés sont étouffants. Les soirées se passent sur la véranda, à boire du thé glacé et à raconter des histoires. Ruth Anne Boatwright, surnommée Bone par sa famille et estampillée " bâtarde " par le comté de Greenville, se souvient. Elle revoit sa grand-mère édentée, impertinente, ses tantes farouches, usées par leurs grossesses, ses oncles violents, ivrognes pris au piège de leur misère. Elle se souvient de l'amour qu'elle portait à sa mère et de la haine grandissante qu'elle éprouvait pour son beau-père. Elle se souvient et elle raconte, avec une brutale sincérité, les aspirations d'une petite fille, la violence insoutenable, l'amour obstiné. Ce premier roman largement autobiographique, écrit pour exorciser cette enfance brûlée, a été finaliste pour le National Book Award en 1992. " Dorothy Allison sonne le retour de la littérature sociale aux États-Unis. Elle est devenue l'écrivain de l'Autre Amérique : celle des Blancs déshérités qui n'ont aucun espoir, aucune croyance, aucun avenir. Avec une force incroyable, Dorothy Allison décrit ce vide et cette violence. " Bernard Géniès, Le Nouvel Observateur

Summary:

The newest collection from Nick Flynn, whose “songs of experience hum with immediacy” (The New York Times) Beginning with a poem called “Confessional” and ending with a poem titled “Saint Augustine,” Nick Flynn's I Will Destroy You interrogates the potential of art to be redemptive, to remake and reform. But first the maker of art must claim responsibility for his past, his actions, his propensity to destroy others and himself. “Begin by descending,” Augustine says, and the poems delve into the deepest, most defeating parts of the self: addiction, temptation, infidelity, and repressed memory. These are poems of profound self-scrutiny and lyric intensity, jagged and probing. I Will Destroy You is an honest accounting of all that love must transcend and what we must risk for its truth.
