Tongulish is the language of sweet talk and honeyed words, babble and blather, quibble and quizzical. And tongulish is spoken throughout Rita Ann Higgins’s lively new collection. These are provocative and heart-warming poems of high jinx and telling social comment by a gutsy, anarchic chronicler of Irish lives and foibles, mischievous and playful in their portrayal of feckless folk and outcasts, flirts and weasels, gasbags and scallywags.
