Hal Clement has a novel "Cycle of Fire" on a world like this. There are two separate biospheres -- one that is active during the 3/4 of a year when the plant has oceans, and a different set of critters during the shorter, hotter period when the oceans boil.
The planet circles a high luminosity star, so the year is quite long
Poul Anderson has a novel "Satan's World" about a rogue planet making a near pass to a F1 blue giant, which thaws it out enough to be useful for mass transmutation to get established, then the waste heat keeps it from refreezing.
Timing is everything. If it circles a red dwarf in a short period orbit it might be quite livable.
Having large deep oceans will help, at least with coastal areas.
The planet would only be pseudo-locked. If it had a rotation rate of a few revs/year you might get one face getting most of the heat.
This might actually make the planet more livable. Water would evaporate on the hot side, and move in mass to the cold side, and condense there -- net effect moving a lot of heat away.
Massive cloud cover could make the upper atmosphere very hot, while the ground levels were just hot.
Much depends on how much atmosphere you have. Venus is a year round searing black calm at the surface.
So: Suppose you had a red dwarf so your planet has say, a 2 month orbit; lots of green house gasses, you get warmed up in your near by pass, then you cool off over the next 6 weeks of your short year. If the greenhouse effect is good enough, you don't all turn into corpsicles before the next spring.
But if you did it with Earth -- put earth into that orbit around our sun, then the perihelions would boil oceans, and the rest of the year would likely freeze the entire atmosphere.
