In this collection of visceral, dreamlike prose poems and chimeric ink drawings, Burmese poet and artist Maung Day creates a haunting portrait of how political violence and oppression in Myanmar has permeated the everyday lives of its citizens. Exploring family history alongside turbulent current events and historical atrocities, these surreal, at times disorienting poems interweave the gritty and realistic with the fantastic and absurd, delivering personal and powerful social commentary. Maung Day's ninth book of poems, Death in Summer is his first full-length collection written in English and the first time his art and poetry have been published side-by-side.
Maung Day is a Burmese poet, artist, and translator. He lives and works in Yangon, Burma/Myanmar.
