Curse & Berate in 69+ Languages

Curse & Berate in 69+ Languages

R.V. Branham, editor

This book identifies a broad array of crude, vulgar, offensive, scurrilous, lewd concepts, organized thematically, and translated into 69+ languages. It demonstrates how profanity is, in many ways, at the very root of what it means to be human and, inronic as this may sound, points to an alternative, if somewhat offensive vision for achieving global understanding—if we can’t all get along, perhaps we could all insult each other…
R.V. Branham is the founder of the Gobshite Quarterly, a multi-lingual literary journal, based in Portland OR.
