MON (monuments, monarchs & monsters)

(Sputnik & Fizzle, 2020)

Trauma molds the collective memory that Mina Khan's poems relay in this debut collection of poetry, interlacing autobiographical examination with the rigor of researched fact. These poems rupture through a generational understanding between mother, father, and child, and rekindle old symbols through the ashes of contemporary seeing. If ancestry leads the poet toward massacre and war-torn worlds, MON's stunning autofictions recover the flaked past within living monuments.
