Buchbeschreibung New York W W Norton & Company Ltd, 2004. 0. 22x14,5 cm. 6 sheet, 347 p., 4 sheet. Hardcover in black and green with yellow back title. Very good. Jacket very easily worn. Inside very clean. Page 15 to 24 on foot with a very small tear and a dog ear (very small until page 37). In this razor-edged memoir, Nick Flynn, a prize-winning poet, tells the inventive, heartbreaking, and at times darkly comic story of an unconventional reunion between father and son and his attempt to make a shattered world whole. Nick Flynn met his father when he was 27 years old, working as a caseworker in a homeless shelter in Boston. As a teenager he'd received letters from this stranger father, a self-proclaimed poet and con man doing time in federal prison for bank robbery. Nick, his own life precariously unsettled (his mother committed suicide when he was in his late teens), was living alternately in a ramshackle boat and in a warehouse that was once a strip joint. In bold, dazzling prose 'Another Bullshit Night in Suck City' (a phrase Flynn senior uses to describe his life ont the streets) tells the story of two lives, the story of Nick's boyhood in Scituate, Mass., with his brother and young mother who struggled to keep the family together and the story of his larger-than-life father who refused to play by the rules, and the eerie trajectory that led Nick and his father into that homeless shelter, onto those streets, and finally to each other. (Flap) 0.500 gr. Hardcover in black and green with yellow back title. Very good. Jacket very easily worn. Artikel-Nr. 7875DB
