Fears of a Clown: A Collection of Short, Short Stories
In his first compilation of short stories, author John Bruno shares colorful glimpses of the fictional world of a diverse group of spirited individuals who offer thought-provoking messages as they experience both mundane and life-altering events—often with a surprising twist. From Russ, who finds truth through hardship, to Margaret, who embarks on a journey to find her independence, Bruno combines humor and old-fashioned storytelling with introspective questions about goodness, insecurities, and the fortitude of the human spirit that will encourage others to contemplate their own destinies and life purposes. Both inspiring and charming, this compilation of short, short stories shares provocative reflections and vivid revelations while revealing the eccentricities of a few relatable and amusing characters.
