Flea Circus: a brief bestiary of grief
Flea Circus
"Keifetz's (Flea Circus) simply dazzles. The novel takes the reader to the dark place where reason and love collide and collapse under the oppressive weight of loss. A tour de force."  
--Kirkus Reviews, November 11, 2011

"VERDICT The experience of Keifetz's second novel (after Corrido) is less like reading a book than having a frighteningly intimate conversation over coffee. A must for fans of literary fiction."
--Library Journal, November 15, 2011     

Our titles are available online through Amazon.com and spdbooks.org.
