Sch erzogen Marie kann und will nicht darauf verzichten gemeinsame Kinder katholisch zu erziehen Dabei geht es nicht um Antikatholizismus. B ll s 1963 novel The Clown with the main themes being that of love and Catholicism examines in detail the human condition and the hypocrisy of contemporary German society in repressing memory of the historical past in order to concentrate on material reconstruction In the book the figure of narrator Hans Schnier the clown represents the social conscience of German post war reality and through conversations Hans has with those who represent various segments of the community B ll presents his stark criticism of that world especially of the institutions of the church and industry Hans Schnier who s personal and professional life is faltering returns alone and destitute to his hometown of Bonn and spends most of the time secluded in his small apartment drinking and despairing over the past whilst making desperate phone calls to family friends and acuaintances to borrow money and to try and rally support to reclaim his sweetheart He lost his common law wife Marie the Catholic daughter of an old socialist to another man Heribert Z pfner a Catholic lay functionary and he simply can t get over the fact Marie represented for him the calmness and comfort through the hectic life of constant travel being holed up in hotels and performing as his career took off He is now nothing than an artistic soul suffering greatly in the absence of his only love Interspersed with the present are his memories of past events including when Hans and Marie first met as teens and the loss of his sister Gradually the chronology of the entire story unfolds and it s up there with the best German novels I have read The actions might only span no than a matter of hours but it simply never felt that way This is something similar he did remarkably well in Billiards at Half Past Nine The Clown is again clearly a personal work for B ll and was easily as good if not better than the other novels I have read by him so far
