'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 born in London, but is sent away until the city is ready for him. So he grows up in fields and woods, with a second family. He is happy, he thinks. When K is eleven, the city reclaims him. He returns to an unknown mother and a part-time father. He finds friends. He finds love. He finds family. 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.
