Suzan-Lori Parks Comments on My Year as a Clown

slpHere’s what the Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, novelist and screenwriter, Suzan-Lori Parks said about My Year as a Clown:

Robert Steven Williams has written a terrific novel. His book pulls back the curtain on male masculinity — showing us what a guy really goes through when dealing with the difficult mess of his beloved spouse’s infidelity and the ensuing divorce. Williams’ characters give us the real-deal: a gut wrenching and often humorous look, showing us the everyday horrors of what it’s like to start all over again as one approaches middle age.” 

As you can imagine, I was overwhelmed by this support for my work from such an immensely talented writer as Suzan-Lori Parks. Her plays are riveting and get under your skin in the most profound ways. She’s an important American writer and I have no doubt that in a hundred years, her work will still be as vibrant and provocative as it is today.

Many thanks SLP!… Read the rest
