Details

As a teenager he'd received letters from this stranger father, a self-proclaimed poet and con man doing time in a federal prison for bank robbery. Nick, his own life precariously unsettled (his mother committed suicide when he was in his late teens), was living alternately in a ramshackle boat and in a warehouse that once was a strip joint.

Flynn tells the story of two lives, the story of Nick's boyhood in Scituate, Massachusetts, with his brother and young mother who struggled to keep the family together and the story of his larger-than-life father who refused to play by the rules, and the eerie trajectory that led Nick and his father into that homeless shelter, onto those streets, and finally to each other.
