Mark Wisniewski will read from his new novel, Show Up, Look Good. Told from a woman’s point of view in the months leading up to and following 9/11, Show Up, Look Good features an indefatigable, thirty-something Midwesterner whose break-up with her fiance emboldens her to move to Manhattan. There, she forms an unlikely bond with an aging, mute former New York Yankee, learns his darkest secret—and come to terms with her own—then finds she must reconsider her compatibility with the city she has come to love. Christine Sneed says Show Up, Look Good " is a novel to savor."

Wisniewski is the author of the novel Confessions of a Polish Used Car Salesman, and his fiction has appeared in Best American Short Stories, Pushcart Prize, and many literary journals.
