Jeb Jefferson gave up on working hard. It isn’t just the money, but the American idea of getting ahead by working hard is dead in Pittsburgh. The steel mills closed back when his grandfather was working, and a high school dropout like Jeb hit a brick wall with dead-end jobs.
His girlfriend, Ariel, knows something is wrong, but she doesn’t know what. There are a string of robberies that are terrorizing the city and the police can’t stop them. But Ariel has a more pressing problem when she decides to leave Jeb. Her best friend, Scott, is always there to catch her when she falls, but she doesn’t know that he wants more than friendship.
Scott is working at his family’s bar and with the robberies going on all over town, he has his gun ready for protection.
Everyone is talking about the spectacular crime spree. Even the three rivers give an opinion about what should be done to stop the Clown.
The Clown is written with twenty-one points of view moving the story along. A satire with comedy, drama, crime thriller, fantasy, and romance elements, this novella has underlining social commentary about the state of the working class in modern America, where life without a father is too common.
