Description

In this bold and energetic debut, temporal malapropisms become purposeful play through Tamayo’s poetics of code switching and homophonics. As Tamayo tackles the frustrations of the transnational immigrant experience, language “mistakes” become “missed aches” and she writes mother and mother-tongue into one as “mouth her.” A red thread intrudes throughout this frenetic mixed-genre assemblage, suturing identity to the page by erasing text, embroidering images, and stitching collage together.
