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 co-wrote Spencer Beach's bestselling 2010 memoir, In Case of Fire (Kingsley Publishing). I Know Who You Remind Me Of is the 2012 winner of the Colophon Prize.

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. Winner of the 2012 Colophon Prize, stories from this collection have appeared in the Journey Prize anthology, the Fiddlehead, The New Quarterly, and other journals.
