    One thought on “Without a Name and Under the Tongue”

    1. "When the tears have become a river, morning will arrive even in such a place. The river will become a tongue. Under the tongue are hidden voices. Under the tongue is a healing silence."Zambezi River, ZimbabweIn "Under the Tongue," Zhizha is a child of war who must face her own battle at home, a struggle that leaves her in a psychological state where she has lost her ability to speak. While protecting her child from brutality, Zhizha's mother is sent to jail and she is raised by her grandmother, [...]

    2. The five stars are really for Under the Tongue, which is wrenching, poetic, dream-like, simply extraordinary.

    3. It is difficult to describe Under the Tongue. I had to study it and it took a while for me to understand it. When I felt I had understood it I read it again and it wrenched my heart. There is something very authentic and very real about how Vera uses language to make unspeakable experiences and emotions real.

    4. Please see my review of "Without a Name" for more on that book and the author. "Under the Tongue" is my second-favorite of her books. It's the story of a woman who has suffered at the hands of others and who has been holding all of her secrets back, under her tongue. Like all Yvonne Vera's books, it's not really a narration of events as much as it is a descriptive narration of feelings, so what is really happening outside of the main character is not always clear. The focus is on what is happeni [...]

    5. Okay, I'll be honest, I didn't read Under the Tongue because Without a Name was so entirely upsetting and depressing I couldn't bear any more. Which I guess isn't fair because the second story might provide a breather. At some point I'll go back and see because I do love Vera's language and narrative style.

    6. Without a Name is hard to read (again, because of the subject matter), but it's intense and beautiful. Under the Tongue is sometimes difficult to understand, which is really OK because the subject matter is so horrific. Vera is not a happy writer!

    7. For the first third of Without a Name the book I thought it was really indulgently written: lots of semi-lyrical writing, but it did not make much sense. Towards the middle I realised there was a story there, but not much of one, and it was padded with too much weird description.

    8. The repetition and jumping around became really annoying and hard to keep up with. Same problem in both books. Depressing and no sense of hope or positive thought, just war and rape.
