WINNER OF THE DESMOND ELLIOTT PRIZE 2020 ___________________________________ 'A singular achievement.' Michael Donkor, Guardian 'Heartbreaking, important and original.' Christie Watson, author of THE LANGUAGE OF KINDNESS 'Derek Owusu's writing is honest, moving, delicate, but tough. Once you lock on to his words, it is hard to break eye contact. A beautiful meditation on childhood, coming of age, the now, and the media. This work is heartfelt.' Benjamin Zephaniah 'Honest and beautiful.' Guy Gunaratne, author of IN OUR MAD AND FURIOUS CITY 'When writing is this honest, it soars. What an incredible use of language and truth.' Yrsa Daley-Ward ___________________________________ Anansi, your four gifts raised to nyame granted you no power over the stories I tell... This is the story of K. K is sent into care before a year marks his birth. He grows up in fields and woods, and he is happy, he thinks. When K is eleven, the city reclaims him. He returns to an unknown mother and a part-time father, trading the fields for flats and a community that is alien to him. Slowly, he finds friends. Eventually, he finds love. He learns how to navigate the city. But as he grows, he begins to realise that he needs more than the city can provide. He is a man made of pieces. Pieces that are slowly breaking apart That Reminds Me is the story of one young man, from birth to adulthood, told in fragments of memory. It explores questions of identity, belonging, addiction, sexuality, violence, family and religion. It is a deeply moving and completely original work of literature from one of the brightest British writers of today.

That Reminds Me

As a member of the group, [email protected] I would begin following a thread on the emails and there were things in that thread that would jog my memory about my younger days in the ship yard and on the tugs. I would relate these memories to the group and after awhile there were quite a few of these stories and my cyber friends insisted I write a book about my experiences. These stories cover about 10 years of my early employment from my time in the ship yard to becoming an oiler and finally an engineer before I went ashore and into management. And a few stories from my ship yard management time. I hope you enjoy them.

Which Reminds Me

In Which Reminds Me Duane Windemiller paints a picture of his spiritual pilgrimage from farm boy to college professor-through wars and tranquility-social struggles and personal victory-tears and laughter, to the sense of Jesus' words: "Well done, my good and faithful servant." The picture on the cover is of the author of this book-pastor of the Hampton Beach, NH, summer time chapel. The congregation calls him Windy and he calls himself Sacred Agent 007. The chapel, known as "The Singing Church," is unusual. The bulletin board invites all to "Come as You Are-Happy Hour 9:30." There is laughter and 150 to 200 voices singing gospel music to the beat of a rocking and rolling piano-enough to drown out the shrieking and splashing from the water slide next door. Being pastor of this chapel for twenty-four years caps the long and multi-faceted career of Doc Windy who invites you on a picturesque guided tour nearly ninety years long.
