“Waxing Pathetic ”
M. B. Clark

Waxing Pathetic is a sardonic, often hilarious, raging stream of consciousness from one mad American woman. Clark’s memoir, which includes the absurd, the political, and the lunatic, is a masterpiece of dry witticism and sharp observation.

From Been Down This Road, where she relates her high school dating history, to This is Real…and Surreal, where she takes down some pathetic politics, Clark merges real events with dream-state fiction that evokes deeper truths hidden in memories. Waxing Petty will take you down roads that are not available to most American women. Buy at https://amzn.to/3aTrCT3.
