Fiction. “Jaffe is an outrigger, sailing the deeply troubled waters of our social and sexual psyches, risking much, but, with courage and persistence, staying afloat and returning to tell the tale, which in this instance is his remarkable Othello Blues, with its brilliant characterizations, dialect, knowledge of the blues, and deep understanding of Shakespeare’s Othello.”—Kenneth Bernard
“Nobody does what Jaffe can do. There are just pale imitations.”—Derek Pell
