A thousand clowns

Coe, Fred

About a funny, feisty, compassionate man who is very determined to have nothing to do with the lemming-like rush-hour world. But his resolve is tested when social workers Sandra and Albert tell him that he must shape up, or his twelve-year-old nephew Nick will be shipped out to a foster home. Released when workday lifestyles went largely unchallenged, this inventive comedy-drama gleefully speaks to the nonconformist in all.
