She Has a Name tells the story of a woman with autism and her family as they share difficulties, doubt, anger, and love

With unrelenting yet tender honesty, She Has a Name tells the story of a young woman with autism from multiple points of view. The speakers in these poems—sisters, mother, father, teacher—seek to answer questions science can’t yet answer, seek to protect the young woman, and seek to understand what autism means to their own lives as well.

Reviews / Endorsements

“A fierce love undergirds the poems in Kamilah Aisha Moon’s moving debut collection . . . She Has a Name is resonant in its grappling, wise in its recognition that what threatens to render them each undone is also inextricably part of what binds them to one and other.” —Natasha Trethewey

A Cave Canem Fellow, KAMILAH AISHA MOON has taught at Medgar Evers College, Drew and Adelphi University, and lives in Brooklyn.
