Tameme is a bilingual journal of new writing from North America. Each article is published in English and Spanish, printing the original face to face with the translation on every page. The theme of this issue is spot-on. Reconquista: Reconquest. A term that engages the Conquest of the Americas by colonial powers, but also lends itself to playful or subversive interpretations. A dazzling essay by Phillip Garrison on Mexican immigrants in the United States establishes the context for the theme, and the writing never lets up. Juana Goergen invokes the spirit of Walt Whitman to interrogate him on the America he celebrated. Also featured are Farley Mowat and Charles Simic, in Spanish translation. Tameme embraces translation as a means of cultural exchange, and provides space for translators’ introductions. [Tameme, Inc. 199 First Street, Los Altos, CA 94022.
