Love Drones (Paperback)
Not Yet Published
In Love Drones, Noam Dorr explores the decidedly strange experience of a century-old war driven in part by cutting-edge technology. Born and raised on a Kibbutz in Israel, Dorr served a compulsory military term as an intelligence analyst, tapped because of his interest in pattern recognition. This obsession is reflected in the book with sectional essays laid out according to the number of bombs exploded, a meditation on drones (sound, Predator, bee), oranges concealing grenades, a catalog of various guns, and more. It is a deeply intimate and unsettling book.
