“Katherine Clark’s power as a novelist is on full display in her comic, shrewd, and unflagging interrogation of the South on the cusp of reluctant but nonetheless metamorphic change.”
—Pat Conroy

Katherine Clark, winner of the 2015 Willie Morris Award for Southern Fiction
for her first novel The Headmaster’s Darlings, has published her third book in
the Mountain Brook series. The Harvard Bride begins with the lavish wedding of
Daniel Dobbs and Caroline Elmore, college sweethearts introduced in Clark’s
second novel, All the Governor’s Men. Picking up where the previous novel
ended, The Harvard Bride is a wry comedy of manners and portrait of a marriage
unfolding against the backdrop of the return of native southerners, with their
newly completed Ivy League educations, to the self-contained world of Mountain
Brook’s “Tiny Kingdom.”
