Kirkus Reviews

“A delightful, deliriously happy introduction to an unusual and too-little-known musical form.” — Kirkus Reviews, STARRED

Publishers Weekly

“Teis’s metaphors may not be clarifying for readers unfamiliar with klezmer, but anyone who’s felt the power of a group jam will appreciate this rhythmic, community-centered tale.” — Publishers Weekly
