Mongrel Tongue

Jiménez, Megin

Regular price €16,00

“A mongrel tongue is a language, like English, made up of words imposed by, borrowed, pilfered, and misheard from many different languages. It is a language of the mixed-up descendants of the colonized, the crimson-lipped feminized, the weepy survivors of a fevered nostalgia and hybrid beasts of the deep. We turn to a mongrel tongue when the stories we’ve been told have calcified into media narratives, advertising, and purebred political campaigns, and we wish to write another story, whose ending is yet unknown.”

Short bits of prose and poetry exploring post-colonial subjects and the political dimensions of language.
