Kim Fu took the literary world by storm with her debut novel, For Today I Am a Boy, the story of a young Chinese boy, the only son in his family, who grows up knowing he’s not quite like all the other boys. The novel won the Edmund White Award for Debut Fiction and the Canadian Authors Association Emerging Writer Award.
Her next book, How Festive the Ambulance, was a collection of poems praised by critics for its mischievous tone and dramatic imagery, by turns dark and playful.
Her most recent novel, The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore, recounts the catastrophic events of a kayaking trip gone wrong and the lasting effects that tragedy has had in the lives of five young campers. An unwavering examination of human nature and the fallibility of memory, Fu’s latest book confirms her reputation as one of Canada’s fine young voices.
