Hmmmm. There's more than one book out there now with the BS word in it. Must be a trend. ANOTHER BULL***T NIGHT is one unusual book. This memoir is remarkably frank, vivid and compassionate, all that and without being a sappy sloppy sob story...Thank you, Mr. Flynn. One of the books greatest strengths is that Flynn pulls no punches when describing his own life, his alcoholism and drug use, his periods of waste and dissipation--thanks to his honesty, he comes across not as hero, but as human. The only other authors that I've known who do this are Jackson McCrae (think his BARK OF THE DOGWOOD) and Burroughs with his RUNNING WITH SCISSORS. This novel grabs you, and it is hard to put down. I look at the homeless in a different light.
