Editorial Reviews

"All my life my father was manifest as an absence." That absence became a presence when Nick Flynn met Jonathan by chance in a homeless shelter. At first, the encounter seems less than promising: Nick's father is an impoverished ex-convict who is convinced that America has produced only three great writers; Mark Twain, J.D. Salinger, and himself. Nick Flynn's memoir touches issues of innocence lost and distances conquered. The Washington Post reviewer praised this book as "A powerful tale, stylishly told... The prose swirls in graceful arcs that frequently rise to the level of poetry, leavened by mordant humor." Now in trade paperback and NOOK Book. (P.S. This is a movie tie-in edition. The film, which was released in mid-March, stars Robert De Niro, Paul Dano, and Julianne Moore.)
