STRANGE PASSIONS by John Ngong Kum Ngong


… he writes with a compelling rhetoric force, with an incisive bluntness; revels in sardonic humour, and lines the lamentable, the impatient, and the defiant, that mark his tone with a sublimated sauciness, a verbal effrontery, called to the service of a resistance aesthetic and its noble socio-political ends. He pushes the two processes of subversion and appropriation of metropolitan languages that have come to mark most post-colonial literature to great lengths, twisting, inverting the conventional structures of English and forging strange collocations to bear his thought and emphasize the engendering cultural milieu.
