I found that this was one of those books that I couldn't put down for too long. "What will happen next?" I had to keep reminding myself that this story was an autobiography and not fiction...or so it seems. I enjoyed the numerous true life characters that come in and out of Terry O'Brien's life. A real colorful bunch.
The author relates events in his life to scenes in film that made an impression on him as a child. The book has that same post WWII Hollywood-like feel to it. The hero rides away into the sunset. But the title and the cover imagery implies to me a rather cynical tone. Like father like son. Sarcasm perhaps? The clown paints a happy smile upon his face. Could this re-telling of Terry O'Brien's life be the authors greatest performance ever?? The "show" must go on.
A memorable story. I can't wait for the sequel...probably bigger and better.
