Revolutionary Brain, the newest book by Fiction International Editor-in-Chief Harold Jaffe will be released December 6th, 2012, from Guide Dog Books.
In this timely collection of essays and “quasi-essays,” acclaimed novelist and critic Harold Jaffe explores the maddening chord changes of millennial culture. Gesturing, in a philosophical shorthand, toward a kind of pop Armageddon, Revolutionary Brain is at once thesis, allegory, and surreal comedy, demonstrating just how far we, and the natural world we have debauched, have fallen. Obsessed with technology, we are incapable of reconstructing ourselves. By way of Jaffe’s elegant prose and perfect pitch, our collective disability is laid bare at the 11th hour. Revolutionary Brain is a powerful cry for a brave new aesthetics that turns towards, not away, from our tormented globe.
According to Jonathan Baumbach, author of You: Or the Invention of Memory, “This witty and explosive book is an indictment of injustice and spurious morality and a call to art and enlightened activism as healing alternatives.”
