Cultural Writing. Essays. For some 25 years, Harold Jaffe's name has been synonymous with confrontational innovative fiction with a subversive edge. BEYOND THE TECHNO-CAVE collects the author's recent "creative nonfiction," including insights on art, writing, technology, global politics, travel, and intersections of all of these. Many of Jaffe's texts read like formally innovative narratives, others function like conceptual art, remaining in the mind long after. Everywhere evident is Jaffe's broad erudition, social commitment, and energized, elegant writing. "One of our finest literary terrorists/freedom fighters"--Paradoxa. Collection includes Jaffe's moral call on writers to return from their "inner emigrations" and re-includethemselves in our world and politics, "The Writer During Wartime."
