Breaking Clown Story
Rereading THE WOMAN CHASER by Charles Willeford for class. Happy to be reminded that - as in THE HUSTLER - a clown painting is prominently featured. But is it a sad clown painting? Details are scant: "a white face, blocked in by thick globs of black." Willeford does refer to the painting's "every wavering, tragic line." More on this breaking story as it develops.
