King Clown by Mark Lages
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is probably the most fun I've ever had from a hospital bed.
Not me in a hospital bed, mind you, but the character in the book. He has a lot of time for self-reflection. He runs with a weird little poem his dead father had left him that refers to a King Clown that subtly but inexorably changes how he sees his life.
This isn't a story of grief. It's about perception. And for what it's worth, I'm sure a lot of people would get a lot of interesting insights out of it.
Send in the clowns!
