Get It
While You Can

is Nick's first book, a memoir. It is a warm, hopeful book about finding freedom and claiming it every day of your life, despite all the traps along the way.

"Terrific, wry... as moving as it is precise. What the book does so well is to let us feel how powerfully making pulls against living, how making can become living, though it may leave the maker wanting."

"So gorgeously frank you'll be tempted to steal from [it]."
