“Stories of the highly invisible among us”

Meredith Quartermain writes about my book People Who Disappear in The Winnipeg Review

“Stories of the highly invisible among us: a young man known only through traces on YouTube, a first nations woman whose skeleton is unearthed by children, a young man suffering from mental illness, scrounging for furniture, communities living in the tops of trees, trying to save the forest. Quirky unusual tellings, insightful and deeply felt, these narratives remind us of our complicity in the tragedies we hear about in the news.”

She also recommends The Autobiography of Childhood by Sina Queyras and works by WG Sebald and Proust.
