In issue four, Mother Tongue analyzes dreams (about sexy lions) with Bat For Lashes, and talks Real Housewives and real smiles with Jenna Lyons. We make sense of Whitney Houston with Amil Niazi and tend to songbirds of a different kind with artist Sheida Soleimani. We hit the road in Texas, as Dina Gachman takes us on a winding tale of revenge without remorse, and build a house for the future with Christene Barberich. Photographer Martina Zanin asks us to consider what happens when feline fixations go too far, and illustrator Rachel Deutsch conjures the everyday horror of our children’s unmeetable expectations. Sophie Ebrard contemplates sex and intimacy after kids, author Angela Garbes bridges the mother-daughter divide, and Ruby Warrington and Pooja Lakshmin discuss whether having children even makes sense anymore? And much, more more, including contributions by Kholood Eid, Victoria Hely-Hutchinson, Sarah Hoover, Annie Armstrong Miyao, Bonnie Morrison, Rachel Sperry, Shana Trajanoska, Taravat Talepasand, Ruth van Beek, Anaïs Wade, Han Wang, Diana Weymar, Amber Winick, Lauren Withrow, LaTonya Yvette and Alex Zafiris.
