Literary Nonfiction. ALFABET/ALPHABET is the record of Sadiqa de Meijer's transition from speaking Dutch to English. Exploring questions of identity, landscape, family, and translation, the essays navigate the shifting cultural currents of language by using an eclectic approach to storytelling. As such, fellow linguistic migrants to anglophone Canada will recognize elements of their experience in ALFABET/ALPHABET, while lifelong English speakers will perceive their mother tongue in a new light.
