WINNER of the 2012 Colophon Prize FINALIST for the 2013 Georges Bugnet Award for Fiction, Alberta Book AwardsOriginal 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).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Raves from New Brunswick Telegraph Journal: "Everything about her stories feels so natural and full of life that her characters, and their worlds, burst into life by the end of the opening paragraphs. Largely, Lewis’s stories are about the potency of isolated moments and their consequences, told with an abundance of wit, verve, and luscious language. She captures, commendably and without restraint, the rawness of being human in an imperfect world, and writes so well it’s an effortless, enjoyable read. "Her stories run the gamut from why a broken-hearted lover gave his ex an eye, to how an engineer uses flex hours to time travel and lead parallel lives – an ambitious, hilarious, unique story. Don’t miss this book. I Know Who You Remind Me Of reminded me of no one, and left me wanting more of Lewis’s work."

Editorial Reviews

"Full of sympathy and hilarity, the absurd and the unexpected, I Know Who You Remind Me Of is a treat to read." - Saleema Nawaz, author of Mother Superior "Naomi Lewis writes with x-ray wit and nervous elan, and her audacious stories portray our world as it is, vicious and sumptuous."- Mark Anthony Jarman "From its title onward, the debut story collection by Naomi K. Lewis is about forging a future in order to spite one's past." - The Edmonton Journal "Flowing seamlessly from the tragic to the hilarious, the nine unusual tales set mainly in Canadian cities, are eccentric and original." - Winnipeg Free Press ". . . an effortless, enjoyable read." - saltyink.com
