Reviews are starting to come:
Here’s what Teddy Rose said about My Year as a Clown:
Robert Steven Williams takes the reader on an emotional roller-coaster as we follow Chuck for a year. His writing is raw and at times profound…I highly recommend My Year As a Clown!
And here’s what Joy at Joy Story said:
. . . the humor sometimes gentle and subtle, reached ROFL proportions at times . . . There were a number of eccentric characters that stay with me months later as memories that get confused with memories of someone I once knew.

But at this time I would like to recognize Barbara Probst Solomon for her outstanding article on this very subject written for The New Yorker in 1996. The team is very excited about having the opportunity to interview her on film to learn more about her views on Fitzgerald’s time here. Her work provided the inspiration for all of us to want to know more.… Read the rest
