A short memoir I wrote, longlisted this spring for the CBC Creative Non-Fiction Prize, can be found in the latest issue of Ricepaper Magazine, alongside exciting writing from the likes of Doretta Lau (shortlisted for the 2013 Journey Prize) and Madeleine Thien (author of Dogs At the Perimeter and Certainty).
“When I was young, we lived with my grandparents in Toronto. My parents slept in a windowless room in the basement, hidden behind the washer and dryer. My brother and I shared a bunk-bed, tucked into the bedroom on the second floor. There was a time, living there, when my dreams crept into the waking world.”
You can read the rest by finding a copy at your local independent bookstore, or by ordering one directly from Ricepaper: http://ricepapermagazine.ca/magazine-2/18-3-winter-2013/
