Ron Nyswaner, who wrote the Oscar-nominated screenplay for 1993’s Philadelphia, nails the memoir form in Blue Days, Black Nights, an unsparing look at his doomed affair with a hustler. He starts with the lover’s funeral, then backtracks to recount his relationship with the enigmatic man who lied about everything, including his name, and nights lost to boozing and smoking crack. Nyswaner interweaves their saga with stories about his childhood, especially his difficult relationship with his bullying brother, producing a book that is slight in length but lush in content.
