Synopsis
[This is the MP3CD audiobook format 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.
