Fly With a Murder of Crows
By Tuvia Feldman
In this startling, disturbing, and compelling memoir, Tuvia Feldman takes you from the hustling streets of New York City to the peaceful hills of Vermont and the clamor of Tijuana. Tuvia begins his tale on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, where he lives with his addicted artist mother and two sisters after having been abandoned and abused by his wealthy father. “Adopted” by an inner-city black family, Tuvia finds love and kindness while also receiving tutoring in the intricacies and dangers of the drug trade. Veering between outrage and tenderness, Tuvia recalls his story in the uncompromising language of the street and in a voice that is at once cynical and innocent, harsh and lyrical. As Tuvia struggles to find a place and love in a world he hates–and a reason to go on living–the reader gets to decide what to make of this extraordinary, but perhaps also all-too-common, life.
