In her moving graphic memoir, What is Home, Mum?, Sabba Khan, a second-generation Pakistani immigrant living with her family in Britain, tells the story of her family before and after their desperate move to the UK after Pakistan-India Partition in 1947. In spare, inventively meaningful images, Khan reflects on her life as an independent muslim woman (and aspiring architect), navigating traditional values and the diaspora in this thoughtful rendering of the South Asian immigrant community of Newham, London. In this 10-page excerpt Khan tells her parents she wants to be an architect. Her mother responds, “that job is for BOYS.” What is Home, Mum? by Sabba Khan will be published in April by Street Noise Books.
