Megalomaniac free pdf In her first full-length collection of poetry, Shamshad Khan struts with attitude from the poetic to the polemic- stepping lightly from the satirical to the spiritual. Shamshad's writing is engaging lively and eminently readable, with an awareness of rhythm and the spoken word she manages to present complex subjects using a language that is both subtle and simple.
