Joshua Corey at the Cahiers de Corey blog as given some preliminary thoughts on Rachel Zolf's Neighbour Procedure, along with Geoffrey Nutter's Christopher Sunset.

'A work of radical and rigorous empathy for Jew & Arab ... Zolf's world is raucous, contested, its heteroglossia weighted both ethically and aesthetically ... how physically beautiful the book is: its printing, and that gorgeously textured paper.'

Ah, the glory of today's youth. So young. So full of promise. So innocent. So very much in the pathway of crushing, humiliating, eternal soul-destroying reality.

No wonder that children, in much of literature, are often presented as being somehow wiser than their elders, their lack of world experience uncluttering their precious vision, and thus their every statement uttered from their precocious mouths a jewel of clarity in a universe of uncertainty.

'A Certain Bent Appeal' sees Lemon's appeal

November 3 2009

Not to make too fine a point of it, but the title character of Cordelia Strube's Lemon made me want to get my tubes tied. At the very least, it killed any residual yearning for my teenage years.

It's not that Lemon is too brash, too angry or too horrid a character, it's that she's all too real. As Diablo Cody wrote in Jennifer's Body, 'hell is a teenage girl.' This has never been more true than here.
