You may have met Naomi K. Lewis last fall through the library’s Writer-in-Residence service as she gracefully critiqued our manuscripts, imparted her experienced wisdom, and shared her work. Good things seemed to have happened for Naomi since the end of her residency, as she was awarded the Colophon Prize for Fiction in January and now, eight months later, I Know Who You Remind Me Of is ready to be launched:
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 15
SHELF LIFE BOOKS
(Corner of 4th Street & 13th Avenue SW)
2:00pm - 4:00pm
Original and effortlessly clever, the stories in I Know Who You Remind Me Of capture the sensibility of a generation with no cultural inhibitions to overcome. Naomi K. Lewis’s characters bear the battlescars of adolescence and early adulthood – scars left when one classmate impersonates another in Internet pornography; a lover donates his eyeball in the heat of passion; sibling rivalry escalates into a low orbit. For these characters, everything is straight-on, never coy, and often deliciously funny. Stories from this collection have appeared in the Journey Prize anthology, the Fiddlehead, The New Quarterly, and other journals.
Library copies of I Know Who You Remind Me Of are on the way. Until they come, click here to place a hold on Naomi K. Lewis' debut novel - Cricket in a Fist.
