Harold Jaffe’s innovative fiction, non-fiction, and docu-fiction, deal with under-represented voices and perspectives in the American cultural fabric, such as death row prison inmates, political anarchists, and other unusual points of view. He has devoted his career to “mixing things up.” Even if audiences don’t always agree with his point of view, they appreciate his literary tactics and bravado, and his devotion to his cause.
Harold Jaffe is the author of 19 books, including Anti-Twitter: 150 50-Word Stories, Jesus Coyote, Terror-Dot-Gov, 15 Serial Killers, and Sex for the Millennium. Jaffe’s fiction has appeared in such journals as Mississippi Review, City Lights Review and Paris Review. He has won two NEA grants in fiction, two Fulbright fellowships and three Pushcart Prizes in fiction, among others. Jaffe teaches writing and literature at San Diego State University and is editor of the venerable literary journal, Fiction International.
