Review: Harold Jaffe’s Anti-Twitter

leave a comment »

I review Harold Jaffe‘s Anti-Twitter (Raw Dog Screaming Press, 2010) at Prime Number Magazine. Jaffe is the author of over fifteen books. His essays, fiction, and docufiction have been published at The Paris Review, Black Warrior Review and anthologized in the Pushcart Prize and Best American Short Stories anthologies.

“Harold Jaffe’s literary vision may not be unleashed by psychotropic drugs, but his prose suggests a hypothetical “David Markson on LSD.” He challenges the reader to connect previously undiscovered synapses, reminiscent of Markson’s brilliant collage masterpieces, yet from a completely different aesthetic, one that documents cultures in chaos. The ramifications are unsettling…(Full review here)”

DISCLOSER: Caleb Powell has no relationship with Harold Jaffe or Screaming Dog Press.
