Longtime Provincetown resident and author.
"I only gradually understood that the whole life of the children and my father rested on my unaccustomed shoulders. I began to realize that my writing was no longer something that helped along someone else, a sort of lucky by-product of our joint lives, but the only way I knew of earning a livelihood."
Time and the Town (1942)
