“If we could get beyond the concept of betterness and embrace otherness maybe then we’d have a shot at respect for all living beings!”
Atomic Clown is a whimsical memoir by celebrated clown & “human cartoon” Sara Moore about surviving grief, heartbreak & cancer by laughing in the face of it all. This colorful jolly-rancher of a book, designed by Fernando Gambaroni, chronicles Moore’s adventures in cancer treatment, donning big shoes & various comic guises, with the wonderful staff of Kaiser Permanente Oncology & Radiology. Accompanied by insights, musings and testimonials, we hope this effort will inspire others to venture where the humor meets the humanity! 80% of the sales of this book will benefit San Francisco’s Medical Clown Project whose mission is to bring joy and laughter to patients in healthcare facilities throughout the Bay Area. The rest will buy donuts for Fernando and Sara’s clown students!
