Mr. Clarke comes to us from Australia, where he was born and raised and got his degree in English and American literature, as well as a Master’s degree in Journalism. He worked as a foreign correspondent in Europe, Africa and elsewhere, before decamping to England where he taught high school classes, tutored, and got another Master’s degree, this time in creative writing at Oxford University. He married a New Yorker and followed her home to where they now live on the Upper West Side. They can be found in their spare moments happily playing with their young daughters in the playgrounds in Central Park.
