Description: The inspirational writings of Henri Nouwen have touched millions of readers all over the world, and, since his death in September 1996, widespread recognition of their enduring value has continued to grow. Now, after being unavailable for several years, Nouwen's "Clowning in Rome" is finally back as an Image trade paperback. In this classic account of the time he spent in Rome, Nouwen offers reflections and spiritual insight characteristic of his best works.

During the months Nouwen was in Rome, it wasn't the red cardinals or the Red Brigade who had the most impact on him, but the little things that took place between the great scenes. In some ways, Nouwen discovered, the real and true story was told by the clowns he often saw in the city streets. In Nouwen's own words, from the Introduction to "Clowning In Rome": "The clowns are not the center of events. They appear between the great acts, fumble and fall and make us smile again after the tensions created by the heroes we came to admire. The clowns don't have it together....They are awkward, out of balance, and left-handed, but...they are on our side. The clowns remind us with a tear and a smile that we are sharing the same human weakness. The longer I was in Rome, the more I enjoyed the clowns, those peripheral people who by their humble, saintly lives evoke a smile and awaken hope, even in a city terrorized by kidnapping and street violence".
