    Looks kinda sktechy:

    A relatively young and small independent house, we are committed to publishing works of creative non-fiction and works of non-fiction that support the study and enjoyment of literature and writing. In addition to this list of titles, the Jefferson Press Prize will also determine the one book of fiction we publish each year, in hope of giving rise to strong, new voices and lasting literary careers....
    The link to their website says "under construction" so getting a list of titles they've published is in impossible.

    Sends up red flags for me.

    This book is published by a Jefferson Press. I don't know if it's the same Jefferson Press:
