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.
Naomi K. Lewis grew up in Ottawa and lives in Calgary, where she writes, edits, and teaches. Her novel, Cricket in a Fist, was published by Goose Lane Editions in 2008, and she co-wrote Spencer Beach's bestselling 2010 memoir, In Case of Fire (Kingsley Publishing).
