Seen Reading is the exciting debut collection of microfictions from Canada’s pre-eminent literary voyeur, Julie Wilson. Based on the beloved online movement of the same name, Seen Reading collects more than a hundred stories inspired by sightings of people reading on Toronto transit, each reader re-invented in a poetic piece of short fiction. Tender, poignant, and fun, Seen Reading offers readers an inspired fictional map while charting an urban centre’s cultural commitment to books and literature.
"Beneath the surface of Julie Wilson’s energy, biting wit, and quirkiness lies intelligence and insight—a fresh observer to the dynamic ways in which we communicate."—Anthony De Sa
"I spy, with my little eye, something that is utterly delightful. Take a peek at Julie Wilson's Seen Reading. There are treasures to be found within."—Ami McKay
“With Seen Reading, Julie Wilson has done something revolutionary for the time: seamlessly combine books-related gossip, arts reportage, and creative writing in every post. The results are exhilarating and deliciously voyeuristic.”—George Murray, Bookninja.com
