Harold Jaffe is a master of the disembodied voice. These fictions --transgressive, political, dryly comic-are grounded in an ancient tradition, that of the speech of the storyteller. Interlocutors talk as if out of dark caves, and the result is a marvel of conversation that takes the reader to places somehow beyond the "real world," only to comment, often searingly, upon its absurdities. Each of Jaffe's volumes has been ground-breaking, and Goosestep is no exception. This is a book of great mastery, some of the most inventive fiction of our time.
