review by Phoebe Bosche, managing director, The Raven Chronicles

Hunter’s haunting persona, the Clown, in his new book of linked vignettes, Clownery: In Lieu of a Life Spent in Harness, eloquently reminds us of our own foibles and follies, yearnings and disappointments, successes and failures, regrets and satisfactions, as we look back at the way we lived our lives. With great skill, insight, playfulness, and compassion, Hunter dissects the character’s dreams, aspirations, and lifetime dislocation from the place he calls home, the place he returns to again and again in imagination and in reality; the American farmland where his moral character, values, and attachment to the land and its people were formed — the simple things that make a life worth living.
