Jakob Daw's Chin
  • n. - (biology) a taxonomic group with a single member (a single species or genus)
n. - A typesetting machine operated from a keyboard that sets separate characters
Jakob is an interesting character! Creator of stories, somewhat mystical, somewhat magical; they are his vehicle for describing the chaos he witnesses...but the solutions seem elusive as he struggles to resolve the the rising and falling action of his words.
He isn't a healthy man, but he clearly has a heart for justice and humanity. He takes too much to heart, feeling the pain in the world. 

Monotype Man seems an appropriate nickname for this unique character in the book DAVITA'S HARP written by Chayim Potok.
I am excited to reveal Jakob and his cohort at Milagro Theater when Jewish Theater Collaborative opens their PAGEtoSTAGE production in about 10 days.
