By Nick Flynn
Graywolf Press, June 2, 2015
A daring and intimate new book by the poet and memoirist Nick Flynn.
"[Flynn’s] books of poetry—Some Ether, Blind Huber, The Captain Asks for a Show of Hands—all ask difficult questions and leave us with a beautiful acceptance that there is often no answer at all, that our memories arrange things in ways that may or may not offer closure. There is something about his work that allows us to exhale, to sit in our own messes and be okay."
