Foreign Affairs: Male Tales of Lust & Love

In this newest short story collection from award-winning writer, Daniel M. Jaffe, red-blooded American men revel in wild romps, lose themselves in romances, discover unexpected friendships, and wrestle with shocking encounters, all while vacationing abroad. These travelers befriend a serial killer in a Munich bathhouse, a gay Holocaust ghost in Prague, a shape-shifting seductress in Mexico City, a desperate prostitute in Seville, a closeted Catholic school administrator in Dublin, an old woman who feels herself a prisoner in Soviet Leningrad. On an El Al flight home from Israel, a New Yorker tries to make sense of a fellow passenger contentedly sealed head-to-toe in a plastic bag. A tourist from West Hollywood wonders in Spain whether he should cruise a handsome older man seemingly right out of an El Greco painting. A New Jersey suburbanite strives to suppress forbidden urges while on a public Puerto Rico beach. The Americans here are young, middle-aged, senior. They are gay, bi, and straight men longing for other men, for women, for a trans old friend. Whereas many of these stories are realistic, others bring to life ghostly incarnations of those long dead, beings who defy definition, even the Devil himself. In Foreign Affairs, Daniel M. Jaffe blends humor, suspense, and eroticism with compassion for human frailty and respect for the universal struggle not simply to endure but to overcome. These stories titillate, intrigue, and tug at heartstrings.
