Nick Flynn on Adaptation


Guernica has an extensive interview with Nick Flynn, who reflects on the process of translating Another Bullshit Night in Suck City into film, fathers, and the final book in his memoir trilogy.

“I’ve come to a point in my life where I know everything has an effect on my psyche. You just have to recognize it.
