Please join Mark Ernest Pothier -- one of Poets & Writers' "Get the Word Out" publicity incubator authors -- for a reading of his debut novel, "Outer Sunset" (University of Iowa Press) at the Mechanics Institute in San Francisco.
In a starred (upcoming) review, Foreword says: "Beautiful and touching, Outer Sunset tells a stirring father-daughter tale about facing impending loss with faith, hope, forgiveness, and healing... These themes are weighty, but the story glitters with subtle humor and surprising turns, too."
“It’s rare for a novel to probe the psyches of its characters as deeply as Mark Ernest Pothier does in Outer Sunset. Many writers don’t even suspect such depths exist. They do, though, and here’s the proof.”—Richard Russo, author, Empire Falls
