Spumonis-FRONT-COVER “Like a three-ring circus” — Kirkus Reviews

FLIGHT OF THE SPUMONIS: COMING THIS SPRING

What drives a 13-year-old trapeze artist to run away from the circus? Marco Spolini seeks freedom from an overbearing father, critical stepmother and smothering uncle. Accompanied by a 15-year-old multiracial street kid named Jimmy Q and hunted by a relentless, one-eyed female private eye, Marco undertakes a journey of discovery. Traveling from New York to Los Angeles, he crosses a 1980 America beset by economic and political frustration.

A Huckleberry Finn for our time, Flight of the Spumonis offers a satiric, moving look at an America in transition and the timeless human quest for community.
