Pangaea

0 out of 5

“if you wish to read
the story of my people
look no further
than my body.” 

Pangaea is a collection of poetry about working through the trauma inflicted on a body, whether the trauma comes from a person, a country, or from within. It is the act of learning to be whole in a broken body, a broken world. It is a collection of tales told through generations of stories hidden beneath the skin.

“Pangaea is a brutally honest collection with visceral imagery that’ll stick with you long after reading it. Full of both pain and power, the speaker’s voice transcends the page and creates a lasting emotional impact on the reader. “Handling House-fires” was especially poignant for me, as the final image of the speaker spitting up flowers was so unique and vivid. I’d recommend this to anyone wishing to delve into a heartfelt piece of work dealing with socio-political and cultural dynamics in America and around the world.” — Heidi Wong, author of Turning to Wallpaper

“To be a person of color in literature is to hold the stories your ancestors can no longer tell, and to illustrate the pain the rest of the community can no longer hold inside their chest. PANGAEA is not only a beautiful tribute to heritage and the grief of exclusion, but also an honest reflection of heartbreak, trauma, and the heavier parts of becoming. Mian masterfully crafts each piece with both ferocity and tenderness. I highly recommend investing in this incredibly fulfilling collection.” — Ari B. Cofer, author of Paper Girl and the Knives That Made Her
