Nick Flynn at SJSU

This coming week, SJSU’s Center for Literary Arts fall series shifts into high gear with three events highlighting novelist, poet and playwright Nick Flynn. Flynn is best known for his memoir Another Bullshit Night in Suck City and his second book of poems, Some Ether, which nabbed the 1999 PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award for Poetry. His work has been featured in major periodicals and journals such as The Nation, The New York Times, The New Yorker and the Paris Review. Enhancing his name recognition, his memoir was recently made into the film Being Flynn, starring Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore.
