Available Now on Amazon

The 11th Inkblot invites the reader to become a passenger on a moving interpretive journey of loss, madness, acceptance, and redemption. In this historical fiction, with hints of magical realism, Kleiger treats us to a psychologically-textured coming of age mystery, enmeshed with unexplained family alienation, childhood grief, trauma of war, and a search for connections.

“Spellbindingly measured narrative that entertains and enthralls…A unique and captivating story of a young mind torn between science and art…engrossing debut novel by Kleiger.”
—Kirkus Reviews
