The Clown by Heinrich Böll
TRADE PAPERBACK  PENGUIN CLASSICS
Book is in very good condition. Very little wear to cover aside from a cut corner on back. Tanning to pages and cover.
Acclaimed entertainer Hans Schneir collapses when his beloved Marie leaves him because he won’t marry her within the Catholic Church. The desertion triggers a searing re-examination of his life—the loss of his sister during the war, the demands of his millionaire father and the hypocrisies of his mother, who first fought to “save” Germany from the Jews, then worked for “reconciliation” afterwards.
