Review by: Temple Emmet Williams on Oct. 16, 2016 :
“Ozzie the Clown” by William Walton creates a remarkable allegory of hiding behind a mask. It’s a wonderful short story. Some of it reveals terror with castoff understatement, as in the relationship of Ozzie and Burpo, his clown master. All of it works, carrying a reader from sentence, to paragraph, to a page, not wanting to stop. Very little seems wasted.

Mr. Walton can write, capture your brain cells, and then spit them out after adding some extra intellegence to them. It’s a fine experience, something akin to magic.

Loved both Mike From the Mailroom and Ozzy the Clown by William Walton. Exciting, thrilling, and mysterious. Great reads!
