  • Of Mongrelitude is a colloquy on the mongrel body, texual and actual, sexual, specieal, and racial. Composed in a hybrid style, it makes the argument that everything can and does come into ‘englyssh’: ancient and invented languages, european and indigenous, tongues not yet named. All of this ‘made up as medicine’, as ceremony for all creatures, as literal song. 

  • Brolaski riffs off the eponymous idea of what it means to be a mongrel. . . . Brolaski presents, and seems dedicated to, the kind of experimentation that keeps language evolving and malleable.”
