Description

While writers living in exile have much to say, they often lack a space in which to be heard. Speaking in Tongues offers the personal reflections of writers in exile--many now living in Canada--as they engage with and interrogate the act of translation.As one writer living in exile has said, "Crossing borders, one after another, is a bloody devastating experience, but an experience done and over. Translating the self into another self through another vocabulary is what we face, right after we have finished the crossing. It is the last border, and it is invisible. And it is there during the 'translation' period that we slip away."

John S. Saul

A veteran anti-apartheid and liberation support movement activist in Canada and elsewhere, and long-time campaigner for economic justice in Africa, John S. Saul taught at Toronto's York University for many years and has also, cumulatively, for almost a decade, in Africa itself (Tanzania, Mozambique and South Africa). He is the author and/or editor of some eighteen books, from Essays on the Political Economy of Africa (co-authored with Giovanni Arrighi) in the early seventies to Decolonization and Empire: Contesting the Rhetoric and Reality of Resubordination in Southern Africa and Beyond in 2008. He is currently working on a short analytical history of South Africa, an account of the "Thirty Years War for Southern African Liberation (1960-1990)," and, for Arbeiter Ring, a study of the world-wide anti-apartheid/liberation support movement since 1945.
