Tabitha Clark

“Once, an American writer summed up this modern life in all its beauty and horror by writing three words: So it goes. I work with this simplicity as my imperative. Besides this, I have the same deep respect for American folk that has driven the American imagination since Twain. I like to tell stories.”
