Iain Reid

In The Truth about Luck, Iain Reid, author of the highly popular coming-of-age memoir One Bird's Choice, accompanies his grandmother on a five-day vacation, which turns out to be a "staycation" at his basement apartment in Kingston. While the 28-year-old writer is at the beginning of his adult life, his 92-year-old grandmother is nearing the end of hers. Between escorting his grandma to local attractions and restaurants, the two exchange memories and she begins to reveal details of her inspiring life story. (From House of Anansi Press)
