I Am the Clown

“I Am the Clown” is the third book in the trilogy about life and death. The author sees all people like some kind of clowns who are balancing on a tightrope between life and death, carrying with them a huge range of emotions. We alternate between sad and happy, we have fear and we are brave, some­times we make big mistakes, sometimes we accomplish miracles, sometimes we prefer to be alone, sometimes we love to get lots of attention. But what makes us the most happy is to have good relations with our family and friends.
