Tonguit, Paperback Book

Tonguit Paperback



'Listen, hit's semple: in Orkney I'm English; in England I'm Scottish; in Scotland, Orcadian -' This expansive collection by one of Scotland's outstanding performers is a moving exploration of identity, and how it is warped and changed by our languages, nationalities, and the often inhuman machinations of the State.

Tonguit stands as a collage of the early 21st century; of growing intolerance, the rise of ATOS, the bedroom tax, growing protest movements , the homogenisation of politics, and beneath it all humanity, trying to love and laugh and live.
