That Reminds Me

Derek Owusu

  • First edition
  • First printing
  • Signed by the author

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.

‘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

‘When writing is this honest, it soars. What an incredible use of language and truth.’ – Yrsa Daley-Ward
