A Circle of Elephants

Mitch Savistsky, MD

"Fels has written an intimate, often funny but always heartfelt fictionized account of his family. He explores the complicated relationships between parents, step-parents, their children and extended families over a span on nine years, drawing his mid-century characters and places with humor and a fine ear for dialogue."

Dewey Watson, Author of Shift and Shout

"A Circle of Elephants is a delightful collection of poignant and humorous tales of life in a Los Angeles few of us have known. Fels touches on the struggles Americans encountered as it transitioned from pre-modern to modern at the end of World War II. His characters experience McCarthy witch hunts and Hollywood glamour while watching Los Angeles expand from a series of suburbs to a complex metropolis. A great and enjoyable read."
