Description of the Book :


How do you close the gap between two languages? Is it better to just speak one? And when we don't completely identify with either, what are we left with?

From watching English bicker with Cantonese to pondering over groceries, chingllish is an exploration of the bilingual experience. Written in an innovative fusion of English, Cantonese, and other languages, the collection pushes the boundaries of where a language stops, and another one begins.
