Bailey has noted, "Paul the Clown, Irmy
the sword-swallower, and Almstead the magician are artists in the same sense that Kafka's hunger artist is an artist" (156).
In Shadows and Fog, the comic storyline revolves around the relationship between an unfaithful clown (played by John Malkovich) who thinks of himself as an artist and his long-suffering wife, Irmy
(played by Mia Farrow), who desperately wants a family.
