Get ready for the Academy Awards this February with these books that we think might be a little better than the movie.

Nick Flynn is the author of three memoirs including Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, later turned into the movie Being Flynn, and three collections of poetry. Flynn divides his time between Brooklyn and Houston where he teaches creative writing at the University of Houston. His work, often very personal, discusses the birth of his daughter, his complicated relationship to his mother who comitted suicide when he was 22, and his even more complicated relationship to his estranged father who he reunited with at 27 in a homeless shelter in Boston where his father was staying as a "guest."

Two Lines Press is a publisher of translated fiction and nonfiction, offering American readers the opportunity to read some great work from abroad. Two Lines Press endeavors to give readers another point of entry to an international discussion and to see that great literature isn’t created by the background of the culture in which its produced but by the talent of the writer that produces it (and the translator that brings it to English).
