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.

Mina Khan’s writing delves into anger as an act of protest, mourning, and collective healing. A queer Korean-Pakistani
first-generation American, they write into patterns of grief and subjugation. Mina’s work nests between nations, generations.
They are the recipient of the Olin Fellowship and the Reed Prize, and have been published in several journals, such as Lammergeier,Five:2:One and decomP magazinE.
