Description

All Weekend with the Lights On collects 14 of Mark Wisniewski's provocative and edgy stories. Each story explores its own sense of longing or loss, often related to the age-old battle between the sexes. Mark's deft narrative hand paints the vernacular voices of bookies and college students, of unpublishable authors and supernaturally proficient high school girl basketball players. The stories, while often focused on the vicissitudes of relationships, are crisp and incredibly funny.show more

Review quote

"The quirky characters who inhabit Mark Wisniewski's first collection of sometimes funny, sometimes sad stories, All Weekend with the Lights On, sound literate, folksy and perfectly capable of doing anything. Wisniewski shows a shrewd hand with sparkling dialogue, whether between sibling Polish bakers, or a struggling writer and a hooker/editor who join forces to blackmail the writer's agent."show more
