The Perfect Fool by Stewart Lee

The Perfect Fool

Stewart Lee

This book bulges with larger-than-life characters - all entitled to a book in their own right. But how will they ever come together? It's fun finding out!

Extract

'The Hopi clown is not like a comedian or a rodeo circus performer. He is a Perfect Fool, showing the people that man can never be perfect. He teaches us how man clowns his way through life, and hopes that this knowledge will lead man to some sense of right. He opens a door into a greater reality than the ebb and flow of everyday life.'
