Nick Flynn, one of the pre-eminent poets at work today, author of such collections as My Feelings and Some Ether, as well as some notable memoirs, including Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, is back with a powerful, loaded new collection of poems, I Will Destroy You (Graywolf Press).
“Nick Flynn, that charismatic horse thief, is up to it again. Standing this close. Whatever you have or had to lose (to win), he’s already stolen and sold it. And yet you still (and so badly) want to hear from him, have him tell you how we (can) live.”—Olena Kalytiak Davis.
“What is there to say when a book is such absolute perfection—beauty, grief, and redemption—that it literally takes all words and air from the mouth?”—Jacqueline Woodson.
In conversation with Nick Flynn will be Charlie Wright, longtime Seattle arts supporter and publisher of Wave Books.
