Poetry. Rachel Zolf's powerful follow-up to the Trillium Award-winning HUMAN RESOURCES is a virtuoso polyvocal correspondence with the daily news, ancient scripture and contemporary theory that puts the ongoing conflict in Israel/Palestine firmly in the crosshairs. Plucked from a minefield of competing knowledges, media, and public texts, NEIGHBOUR PROCEDURE sees Zolf assemble an arsenal of poetic procedures and words borrowed from a cast of unlikely neighbors, including Mark Twain, Dadaist Marcel Janco, blogger-poet Ron Silliman, and two women at the gym. The result is a dynamic constellation where humor and horror sit poised at the threshold of ethics and politics.
