    In this first play from the award-winning memoirist and poet Nick Flynn, four strangers meet on a New York City sidewalk during a blackout. Gideon finds himself locked out of his apartment, stranded on the street with nothing but a television and the company of three individuals, each mysterious in his or her own way: the specter-like Alice, ringleader of the neighborhood; Esra, a fifteen-year-old girl whose mother is M.I.A. - again; and Ivan, a marooned businessman trying to make his way home. As Gideon makes futilely attempts to break into an apartment that may or may not be his, an unsettling connection between Ivan and Esra develops while Alice and Gideon look on helplessly. Unable to make sense of their predicament, let alone alter it, the four float aimlessly in and out of seeming reality only to find themselves even more lost when the electricity finally comes back on.Once again exploring the tenuous membrane that separates comfortable everyday existence from the desperate margins of society, Flynn portrays an urban dystopia unnervingly similar to our own world while poignantly tapping into the loneliness and peril of city life.

    Award-winning poet Nick Flynn takes readers into the dangerous and irresistible center of the hive I sit in a body & think of a body, I picture Burnens' hands, my words make them move. I say, plunge them into the hive, & his hands go in.-from 'Blind Huber' Blindness does not deter Fran├žois Huber-the eighteenth-century beekeeper-in his quest to learn about bees through their behavior. Through an odd, but productive arrangement, Huber's assistant Burnens becomes his eyes, his narrator as he goes about his work. In Nick Flynn's extraordinary new collection, Huber and Burnens speak and so do the bees. The strongest virgin waits silently to kill the other virgins; drones are 'made of waiting'; the swarm attempts to protect the queen. It is a cruel existence. Everyone sacrifices for the sweet honey, except the human hand that harvests it all in a single afternoon. Blind Huber is about the body, love, and devotion and also about the limits of what can be known and what will forever be unknown. Nick Flynn's bees and keepers-sometimes in a state of magnificent pollen-drunk dizziness-view the world from a striking and daring perspective

    Winner of a "Discovery"/The Nation AwardWinner of the 1999 PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award for PoetrySome Ether is one of the more remarkable debut collections of poetry to appear in America in recent memory. As Mark Doty has noted, "these poems are more than testimony; in lyrics of ringing clarity and strange precision, Flynn conjures a will to survive, the buoyant motion toward love which is sometimes all that saves us. Some Ether resonates in the imagination long after the final poem; this is a startling, moving debut."

Haunted by a history of addiction, a relationship with an unsteady father, & a longing to connect with his mother, who committed suicide, Flynn artfully interweaves paasages from his childhood, his relationships with women, and his growing obsession: a questioning of terror, torture, and the political crimes we can neither see nor understand in post-9/1l America n life. 'A gleaming, brutal, beautiful book.'
