"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
