Another Bullshit Night in Suck City: A Memoir by Nick Flynn
Another Bullshit Night in Suck City: A Memoir

pollyanna media, March 20, 2013

I'd heard about this book for a few years now and thought it wasn't for me--just not interested in the topic. I was wrong. Another Bullshit Night in Suck City stands out as a thoughtful memoir about loss and the stories we tell ourselves to get by. I've read many recent memoirs and this one had a beauty and humility to it that felt earned, honest and rare. Although issues like addiction and suicide are present, they don't dominate the story. Instead we get a very personal meditation on survival, forgiveness and understanding told with the ambivalent and jaundiced eye of someone not interested in peddling fairy tales or magical thinking.
