Mashkode - A Verse Novel
Drawing from the rich tradition of the hybrid/verse novel, from my experiences as a two-spirit Anishinaabe/Turkish-Cypriot, and from post-colonial scholar Homi Bhabha’s concept of hybridity, Mashkode puts its own spin on the mythical impossibility of the Manitoba Legislative Building. The story centers on representations of hybridized “Others” where the building fails to, forging a new myth in the process.
