Sarah Fran Wisby

Join us for the East Coast Book Release Party for Sarah Fran Wisby‘s new book, the heart’s progress. Wisby will be joined by Amanda Davidson and Dia Felix.

What begins as an exercise in anthropomorphism quickly becomes a raucous joyride and moving confession. THE HEART’S PROGRESS’s pitch-perfect timing, dark hilarity, imaginative range, and spot-on insights into the spastic stations of the human heart perform a seduction so complete, I’m ready to follow Sarah Fran Wisby off a cliff — or at least, read everything she writes.
–Maggie Nelson, author of The Art Of Cruelty

Sarah Fran Wisby is the author of the heart’s progress and VIVA LOSS. She writes poetry, essays, pornography, novels, and status updates. She lives in San Francisco and works in the food trenches but is currently living out of her ’98 Lexus for three months on tour. See more pictures of her wearing fur and read her woefully outdated blog at www.sarahfranwisby.com.

Dia Felix is a writer and filmmaker who lives in New York. Her first novel, Nochita, was published by City Lights/Sister Spit, earlier this year.

Amanda Davidson’s chapbook Arcanagrams: A Reckoning is forthcoming on Little Red Leaves’ Textile Series. Her fiction chapbook Apprenticeship (New Herring Press) was a finalist for the 2013 Calvino Prize. She is currently at work on a performance novel about the mystic Swedenborg. She never knew how much a person could love one small dog.
