Award-winning poet/author Flynn uses his daughter's imminent birth as a catalyst to examine personal and political precariousness. Flynn jumps back and forth in covering his rocky childhood (his parents: a distraught, hard-living single mother; an ex-con, mentally wrecked father who was largely absent from Flynn's childhood), his struggles with women and sobriety, and adjusting to his daughter's arrival. Flynn’s memoir is a swirl of introspection and anguish.
