AC's Reviews > The Clown
Though I adored Billiards and Group Picture, I didn't like this one much at all. It was claustrophobic and joyless in the extreme, felt dated, engages in a polemic on issues that leave me utterly cold (Christianity in Postwar Germany), and lacks the lively *humanitas* of Böll's other work. I would not advice people starting with Böll to start here.
