Katherine Clark holds an A.B. degree in English from Harvard and a Ph.D. in English from Emory. She is the coauthor of the oral biographies Motherwit: An Alabama Midwife's Story, with Onnie Lee Logan, and Milking the Moon: A Southerner's Story of Life on This Planet, with Eugene Walter, a finalist for a National Book Critics Circle award. The Harvard Bride, the third in her series of Mountain Brook novels featuring Norman Laney and his students, is preceded by The Headmaster's Darlings and All the Governor's Men and will be followed by The Ex-suicide, forthcoming from the University of South Carolina Press's Story River Books, as is her oral biography of Pat Conroy. Clark lives on the Gulf Coast.
"In The Harvard Bride, Katherine Clark masterfully brings to life the colorful cast of Mountain Brook and peppers liberally with wedding drama. Through her carefully-drawn characters and tight plot twists, she simultaneously exposes the unsavory underbelly of Southern high-society and reveals gems of unexpected beauty. A fast and entertaining read!"—Nicole Seitz, author of The Cage-maker, The Inheritance of Beauty, and The Spirit of Sweetgrass
"Katherine Clark's newest treasure The Harvard Bride is a captivating tale of twentieth-century Alabama society. With a wry wit and keen eye for the most curious and conflicting details of southern life, Clark continues the story began in her earlier Mountain Brook novels with a complex portrait of Caroline Elmore, a newlywed native of the 'Tiny Kingdom' embarking on an adventure into the byzantine world of true-self and purpose. A beautiful, artful novel from a writer meant to share this story with us."—Patti Callahan Henry, author of The Idea of Love and The Stories We Tell
"An insider's guide to the drama of the debutante set and a perceptive look at the growing pains of a community attempting to change its deeply entrenched ways. A funny, gossipy look at a slice of the South through the eyes of an indelible character."—Kirkus Reviews
