Chicago

Recently Harold Jaffe's Induced Coma received high praise from Chicago Review. Here's a snippet:

“While Harold Jaffe’s writing has been dubbed 'literary terrorism' by numerous critics (and even his own publishers), one would find it difficult to categorize Induced Coma: 50 and 100 Word Stories, his most recent volume of docufiction, as terroristic. Rather, Jaffe’s meticulous deconstructions of main- stream “news” articles and various other online and print sources demonstrate the consciousness of an artist who is struggling with, as he calls it, 'writing in a dying world.' The terror is therefore not of Jaffe’s conscious doing, but the result of his ability to remove the blinders set forth by a rapidly deteriorating culture, one that does not want to acknowledge the extent to which it has succumbed to various millennial diseases: virtual solipsism, televised suicide, crimes against the environment, repressed sexuality, and an increasing discon- nect between cultures, within families, and ultimately, from oneself. . . . Because of his ability to be simultaneously transparent and dreamlike or mystifying, one cannot escape the inclination to place Jaffe alongside Borges—or, in his more 'terroristic' criticisms, Foucault. Ultimately, Jaffe’s newest collection upholds his reputation as a master of literary activism, not terrorism: he does not disappoint readers seeking the ideological truths belying a diseased surface culture."
